Programme Notes:

  • Programme Year Requirements: Students with a C or better in Mathematics at A-level (or equivalent as approved by the School) must choose one 20 credit or two 10 credit modules from the list of 'modules from outside the main discipline' (MOMDs), excluding modules provided by this School. Students without this level of mathematics must take the 20 credit mathematics module. Those required to take this module should note that it must be passed to allow progression to Year 2.
  • Pre-requisites: Some of the modules in the option block are prerequisites for options available in the final year, so that choices need to be considered across both years.
  • 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.
  • Language Modules: Language modules (at Level 2 or above) may only be chosen in order to continue study of a language successfully passed in Year 1.
  • Progress Decisions: Please refer to Section 7 of the University Regulations for further information on assessment, progression and awards.
  • Study Abroad: See also the web page for Degrees with Study Abroad.
  • Optional Modules: 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.
  • Language Modules: Language modules (at Level 3 or above) may only be chosen in order to continue study of a language successfully passed in Year 2.
  • Degree Classification: Refer to the University Regulations for further information on the general rules governing degree classification. It is a specific requirement of this programme that students pass the Computer Science Project in order to be awarded an Honours Degree.
  • Accreditation: Whether to award accreditation is a decision made from time to time by a professional body according to criteria which are then current; hence there is no guarantee that the programme will actually be accredited for any particular year of entry by any particular professional body.
