Undergraduate Modules

"That's what I love about IATL modules, they give you a glimpse into other worlds that you may not encounter otherwise."
- Dr Dave Wood, Reader, Mathematics Institute

Studying on an IATL module gives you the opportunity to work with students and lecturers from right across the university, developing connections between ideas, experiences and practice. These skills, of working with people from different backgrounds and developing complex understandings of concepts, are increasingly valued by both students and employers alike and offer you ways of engaging with some of the big questions facing us today. In an IATL module you are not merely learning about the world, you are working with others to develop new ways of understanding it.

Available to

All undergraduates in years 2, 3 or 4 (with home department approval). All IATL undergraduate modules are approved at Level 5 and 6 with differentiated learning outcomes.

All of our modules are offered for 15 CATS unless stated otherwise
