CSC MSc Core Options

The CSC MSc has been revised and there are now only 3 Core modules CY900 (0 CATS) , CY901 (18 CATS) and CY903 (12 CATS) which equates to 30 CATS, therefore MSc students need to choose 2 to 3 Core Option Modules and one optional module to equate to 60CATS.

For each of these modules you choose you will need to get an Unusual Options Form completed.

When considering modules it is important that you take their timetabling into consideration. Some courses are taught in blocks of two or more weeks and others in weekly lectures and seminars over a longer period.

Please see the Core Option modules below:
