Programme Notes:

  1. The Learning & Teaching and Assessment Methods above are not intended to be exclusive, but to indicate the main methods in use. Module Descriptions contain more detail.
  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 who want to do a mini-project (modules 07953 and/or 07954) and/or take the Project - Advanced MSc (module 02637) must take the Research Skills module (module 06991) and give a presentation on their research plan, which must be approved.
  4. Students' individual programmes of study must be approved by the Programme Director (as the nominee of the Head of School).
  5. Project topics must be approved by the Programme Director as being appropriate to the Aims and Learning Outcomes of the programme.
  6. Students must pass the Research Skills module (06991) and at least one of the mini-projects (07953 or 07954) before being allowed to proceed to this project module.
