Module information and academic issues
To see which modules are available in the 2017-18 academic year just download the complete 2017-18 Inbound Business School Module List It illustrates the Business School modules offered for undergraduate Levels 1-3 and postgraduate. It also identifies whether it runs in the first, second or both semesters (i.e. over the entire academic year). You can find more information about a particular module from the table at the bottom of this page.
Our teaching is a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshops, and attendance is mandatory. You will be taught in English and in class sizes from 20-350 depending on the module. Assessment methods depend on the module studied, but may include a combination of examinations with coursework and assignments conducted individually or in small groups.
Modules are either taught over a full academic year or over one semester. If you are studying with us for one semester September - Janaury you may only choose modules taught in term 1. If you are studying for one semester from January - June you may only choose modules in term 2.
Level 1 modules focus on the introduction and development of basic skills and concepts relevant to each programme. Level 2 modules typically build on this foundation, introducing more advanced technical material. Level 3 modules generally offer students the opportunity to extend their studies in areas of particular interest at a more advanced level.
Students are able to choose modules from across the Business School in Accounting, Finance, Economics, Organisational Studies, and Management.
Module Registration January 2018
Your module registration will not be finalised until you register with us in person in Janaury 2018. We cannot guarantee the availability of modules at this stage. Furthermore, the timetable is not finalised until the start of the year and so we cannot guarantee the compatibility of your module choice with the new timetable.
This semester all module changes for the Business School will be completed via an online form. You can find the form here.
Before completing the form you must read Inbound January Module Change Information
To enrol in modules outside the Business School you will need to contact the relevant coordinator. More information is available here. If you are an Erasmus student you may only choose 25% of your modules outside the Business School.
You need to make sure that you have studied suitable modules to give you the relevant academic background to cope with the module syllabus and meet any prerequisites listed on the module descriptor. This may be dependent on the relevant lecturer’s approval of your academic suitability.
