  1. The programme comprises 60 credits of taught modules from a notional 180 credits for the programme, together with a major research project.
  2. Not all options may be available in any particular year. Some option combinations are only available if the timetable permits. As students may have to make preliminary option choices before timetables are available, changes may be needed later if there are clashes. In selecting options, students need to pay attention to pre- and co-requisites.
  3. Students' individual programmes of study must be approved by the Programme Director (as the nominee of the Head of School).
