Please note, not all modules listed will run every year.  Please ensure you check the module availability for each module outline in the Faculty Handbook.  

The module and programme information in the Faculty Handbook is for current modules.  Modules do change year-on-year and are amended to take account of, for example: student feedback, changing staff expertise, disciplinary developments, pedagogic research and/or the requirements of external bodies and partners.
