Constructing Your Programme
Before considering your module choices, it must be noted that your module choices are NOT guaranteed so we do recommend that you choose a minimum of 10 modules so that we can make alternative arrangements, should your first choices not be available.
Please also bear in mind that we may not be able to exactly match your modules and if you have very specific requirements for your home institutions course and are unable to be flexible with your choices, we may not be able to accommodate your modules in an exchange.
The links below give module, credit, level and semester information for each School and subject area.
At Level four (1st year) modules are open to all students with an appropriate high school qualification. Certain modules which are offered as elective modules do not have this entry requirement. The level five (2nd year) modules generally require some prior experience of the subject at college or university level although, again. However, level six modules (final year) are only available to people who have studied the subject previously. In some cases modules at this level are restricted to students majoring in the subject, although this will be indicated on the page.
Modules are usually designed either as "single" modules, worth ten credits, or as "double" modules, worth twenty credits. Remember, when you are putting together your programme, we recommend that you take modules equivalent to between 40 and 60 credits per semester. A ten credit module usually equates to 3 credit hours in the US system.
Your choice can be made up of modules from the subjects listed below, although the Study Abroad team may be able to arrange for you to take modules in other subjects. Links are provided for each module code that will provide you with more information on the module content. For any students following a Design programme then please contact the Study Abroad Administrator on the study abroad email address on the right for more information on modules available to you.
