Module information and academic issues

Module information

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.

Module Registration Information

Students staying at Exeter for the whole academic year study 120 Exeter Credits, which is equivalent to 60 ECTS. This can be a combination of semester long and academic year long modules.

Students staying at Exeter for one semester only study 60 Exeter Credits, which is equivalent to 30 ECTS. One semester students can normally only select modules taught solely in one semester.

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 at the beginning of the 2017/8 academic year.

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. 

Normal study load

A full academic year of study at Exeter can be a combination of semester and academic year long modules, and will be eligible for 120 Exeter Credits, equivalent to 60 ECTS. If you’re a single semester student you’ll need to choose modules taught solely in one semester, and will be eligible for 60 Exeter Credits, equivalent to 30 ECTS.

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.

Academic issues

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. Erasmus students may not take more than 25% of their modules from outside the Business School.

Undergraduate students are not permitted to select postgraduate modules, but postgraduate students may select undergraduate modules (subject to approval of the home University).
