Choosing your modules

Listed below are the modules we expect to be available to incoming study abroad students in the 2019/20 academic year. Modules are subject to availability and may change depending on staff and student needs.

The modules  below are grouped according to academic level and subject area. If you select modules from within a single group (i.e. from a subject area and academic level) there should not be any timetable clashes. 

You will receive your timetable shortly before you start with us. If you find you have clashes, you can make changes to your module registration during the first two weeks of the semester. Please be aware that restrictions also apply to the maximum number of student registrations on each module and once this has been reached, the module may be closed to further registrations.
