Modules

Under Construction

The module index and individual module web pages are currently under construction in preparation for the 2019/20 academic year.

Introduction

Please note that the modules listed are those we intend to run based on the latest information regarding staff availability, but that teaching staff availability can change, e.g. retirements, parental leave, or ill health, which may require the withdrawal of modules at a later point. If that is the case, students will be notified accordingly.

Please refer to the handbooks for information on policies concerning modules, including the registration process.
