Module information and Academic Issues
The full list of modules running in the University of Exeter Business School in the 2018/19 academic year is: Business School Inbound Modules 2018-19 and the module descriptions are listed below.
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.
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.
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.

Undergraduate exchange students are not able to enrol on Postgraduate modules. However, Postgraduate students are able to enrol on Undergraduate modules, if they have the approval of their home university.
Registration for modules from other academic departments will be done as part of the registration process on arrival in Exeter.
You will receive further guidance on module selection as part of the Business School induction.
Once you have registered for your modules it is your responsibility to ensure that your home university approves your final module choices.
If you’re an exchange student, and you have approval from your home institution as well as the University of Exeter, then you’ll be able to select modules from the Business School, subject to meeting the necessary pre-requisite academic requirements.
We won’t be able to guarantee module availability for the next academic year so remember that module choices agreed before arrival are provisional. Module registration and timetables will be finalised upon arrival at the Business School.
You should expect to be in Exeter during the assessment periods. Due to large student numbers we are normally unable to make alternative assessment arrangements.
In principle, exchange students can select modules from across the University of Exeter, subject to meeting the necessary pre-requisite academic requirements, and gaining approval from their home institution as well as the University of Exeter.
