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, Principal Teaching Fellow, 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.

Term 1 (Autumn)


Term 2 (Spring)


Allocation of places

Priority will be given on a first come, first served basis to those who have completed and submitted the IATL module registration form (see button at top of page). However, please note that in the event of a module being oversubscribed, priority will be given to students taking the module for credit rather than those auditing or 'overcatting' and to students in their final year of study.
