Choosing your modules
Make sure you have read how a major/minor or joint degree is made up for your stage before completing your module choice form.
Your course is designed to be completed over three stages. No matter whether you are studying full-time or part-time, in order to complete your honours degree you must complete 360 credits, 120 credits at each level.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have chosen a programme of studies which is complete and valid. If you do not abide by the details on the Award Map or you do not have sufficient credits, you may not be able to progress to the next stage or graduate as expected. Please seek guidance if you have any queries.
How to choose your modules
- Consult the Award Maps for your particular subjects
- Make sure that you consult the Award Maps for the correct year, because the maps for other years may be different from your course that you are studying. You must consult the award map to see the compulsory and designated modules available to you
- Make sure you read the text underneath the modules on the Award Map. It will inform what modules you need to take for this subject if you are a major, minor or joint student
- Find out more about modules in the module catalogue and then make your choice. The module catalogue is available from the same place as the Award Maps
Make sure that:
- You choose any compulsory modules
