Basic reading lists, teaching arrangements and programme regulations for 2020/21 are published in the Calendar which will be updated for 2021/22 later this summer. Full reading lists are not available until teaching begins.
As an accepted offer-holder, you will be given access at the end of July to a list of pre-readings in mathematics and statistics for the EC400 introductory course. Information on how to access this will be sent to you via an email prompting you to activate your accounts and begin any online quizzes.
