If your course offers optional modules you should consider your choices at the earliest opportunity. This will put you in the best position to shape your studies and prepare for the upcoming academic year.
What you need to know
On this page you’ll find general advice about choosing modules, as well as links to specific advice from your school or department.
Here’s some advice from our Careers and Employability Service:
“Studying what you love and what suits your strengths improves your employability. Choose modules in which you are genuinely interested and which complement each other to get the most out of your studies, achieve the best you can and reach a strong position in the employment market."
We spoke to our students and here are some of their top tips:
- Take this opportunity to broaden your horizons and expand your inter-disciplinary knowledge. If you’re studying languages, for example, consider choosing a business, psychological or classics module.
- Consider your future choices. Think about what you might like to study in your final year and choose something that will prepare you for that.
- Think about the assessment methods and play to your strengths. Do you prefer exams, essays or creative coursework?
Language learning opportunities
Fancy learning a new language? Or perhaps you want to improve existing skills alongside students from around the University? The Language Centre offers students the opportunity to study a language as a subsidiary module alongside their degree. Students who do not have spare credits can take a language module as a fee-paying student.
