School of Economics and Finance

Course modules

All of our undergraduate degree courses are run on a modular system, which offers flexibility and means you benefit from being able to follow your interest in your choice of modules.

You will be assigned an academic advisor upon starting your degree, who will be able to advise you on your choice of modules. In general modules involve three hours contact time for students per week, a two-hour lecture plus a one-hour classroom session with smaller groups of students.
