General information: modules, levels and credits

Each module has a ‘level’ and a number of credits. Generally speaking, Level 4 modules are taken in the first year, Level 5 modules in the second year, and Level 6 modules in the third year. However, there is the option to take additional credits at Level 5 in your final year, provided you satisfy the minimum required credits at Level 6. 

Year one

In your first year, you will take 30 credits in Philosophy.

You are given a free choice of Level 4 modules, all are 15 credits and taught over one semester:

Note that some modules are taught in the autumn and some in spring. We recommend you divide your Philosophy modules equally across the two semesters. 

Your remaining credits will be taken from the School of Law and Department of Political Economy.
