Post-registration Module options


Below is our list of current modules which you can click on for further information including contact details for the module leader. Some modules are only available to local students as they have some classroom-based delivery (labelled as local only) but all other modules are available and suitable for all students. 

Additional modules may be available across the wider University.  Individual portfolios of modules are negotiated with students once an offer has been accepted.  Please bear in mind that module availability is subject to sufficient student numbers. This means that on occasion modules do not run when planned. However, we will always offer you an alternative module which is suited to your needs.

Modules are subject to the university's quality assurance requirements and are reviewed every 5 years. This could result in changes to your module options over the period of your programme.

As all modules are delivered through online distance learning it is essential to have access to a computer and the internet to undertake this programme.

Please note: students undertaking the degree on a part time basis can only take one module per semester.
