How do your undergraduate courses work?

Our courses are made up of individual study units, called modules and subject areas are organised into fields. Some modules are compulsory, but you can usually choose modules outside your field which you are interested in.  See course pages for specific module information.

How many modules make a degree?

Our undergraduate degree courses are usually comprised of 24 modules, eight at each level.  You will be able to see the modules available within the course structure.

What qualifications do you offer?

We offer Foundation degrees (FdA or FdSc) and undergraduate degrees (BA, BSc, LLB and BEd).  We also offer a range of professional courses and postgraduate taught and research degrees.  You can find out what the entry requirements are for each course on the relevant course page.  As well as academic qualifications, some course applications will include an interview or submission of a portfolio of your work.

How long does a course take?

It can vary depending on which route you choose to take.  A full-time Foundation degree takes two years.  Studying a full-time Honours degree (an Honours degree is one that includes a dissertation) takes three years, or four if you include a sandwich year or work placement.  On some courses, these are compulsory.  We also offer fast-track degrees, which can be completed in just two or three years by continuing to study throughout the summer.

What’s a Foundation Degree?

Designed to meet workplace needs, Foundation degrees combine academic study with advanced personal, professional and employability skills. Students who successfully complete a Foundation degree may progress to year two or three of a degree programmes. Find out more at

How are they assessed?

It’s not all about exams. We believe in relevant assessment so your work will be evaluated in a range of ways including essays, project work, presentations, field reports ... and examinations.  See course pages for specific assessment methods.
