Faculty Handbook

Faculty Handbook 2015-2016

The Faculty Handbook Online includes the programme regulations for all undergraduate degrees offered by Durham University. You can use the regulations to check which modules are compulsory on your programme, and which are optional. To find the regulations for your degree programme, use the Programme Search facility below.

Programme regulations should be read in conjunction with the Core Regulations for Undergraduate Programmes.

The Faculty Handbook Online also contains descriptions (including information on the content, teaching and assessment) for all undergraduate modules. To view the individual modules you can:

  • use the Module Search facility below
  • click on the module code (e.g. COMP1021) in the regulations for your degree programme
  • use the departmental module listings to access every module offered by the University, by department and by level.

Further Information

Please check any information supplied to you by your department. You may also find it useful to consider: the Guidelines for Students Choosing Modules; the Faculty Handbook Online’s Frequently Asked Questions; the guide to using the Module Search facility; and the glossary of terms.

Please note that before you finalise your module choices you should ensure that the modules are timetable compatible by using the online timetable.

Please ensure you check the module availability box for each module outline, as not all modules will run each academic year.
