  1. Some of the modules in the third option block are prerequisites for options available in the final year, so that choices need to be considered across both years.
  2. Module Failure The Syllabus web page for every module defines the resit rules if they are different from the first attempt -- follow the links under the module code.
  3. Language modules (at Level 2 or above) may only be chosen in order to continue study of a language successfully passed in Year 1.
  4. Progress Decisions Refer to the University Regulations for further information on the general rules governing progression. There are no additional programme requirements.
