Programmes & Modules

Durham University's Postgraduate Module Handbook includes the programme regulations for all postgraduate degree programmes with taught components, so that you can check:

  • which modules are compulsory on your programme; 
  • whether you have any optional choices;
  • and if you do have optional choices, how many you have and the extent of the choice open to you. 

The Postgraduate Module Handbook also contains descriptions of all the postgraduate modules offered by the University, including the content of each module and how it will be taught and assessed. To access information on individual modules, you can either use the Module Search facility, or you can click on the module code (e.g. COMP40615) in the framework for your degree programme. If you are looking for modules outside of your degree programme, you can also use the departmental module listings to access every postgraduate module offered by the University, by department.
