Students must request at least 9 module options per semester of study.
Ensure that modules requested are for the appropriate semester.
Autumn-only students will not be able to take exams as our exam period is after the Spring term. If you are interested in a module with an exam and you will only be here for the Autumn, please ask us whether it is possible to have an alternate assessment for that module.
A full courseload is 120 UCU per year (60 UCU per semester). This is usually equivalent to three modules per semester.
Erasmus+ students may select modules only within the subject area to which they have been nominated.
Non-Erasmus+ students must ensure that 2/3 of modules are in a single Faculty.
Japanese exchange students with IELTS 6.0 may request Language modules only.
Japanese exchange students with IELTS 6.5 and higher may select from all modules available to visiting students.
