The BSc in Marketing and Management is a three-year degree, taught within the College’s modular system. You are expected to take eight modules in each year, each of which is normally assessed by a combination of coursework and/or an examination in May or June. You will therefore normally have taken 24 modules in completing your degree. The modular system allows much more flexibility than the traditional system. Subject to meeting a module’s prerequisites, you may in principle choose from modules taught in the School of Business and Management, as well as those from all other Schools and Departments in the College (except the School of Medicine and Dentistry). You will need to make sure, however, that your choice of modules is consistent with the structure of the Business and Management degree, and modules taken outside the School should be complementary to your main studies. Your personal academic adviser will guide you through this process and approve your module choices.
