About courses

Students are required to take the number of courses prescribed by their programme regulations, which is normally the equivalent of four full units per year. All course choices are subject to approval from the relevant department, availability and timetabling constraints.

Normally courses will comprise of a lecture and class group for undergraduates and a lecture and seminar group for postgraduates, but this may vary depending on the course.

Programme regulations (listing the required/optional courses for a particular degree programme) and course guides (descriptions of the courses) will be available from September of each academic year in the Calendar.

Personal timetables will be available from LFY at specific times at the beginning of each term. For details please see the Timetables web pages.

Course choice tutorials

Course choice tutorials are available from LFY. The tutorials go over course selection, including how to select courses outside a student's programme regulations.
