Current Undergraduates

The teaching curriculum

In the following document the table presents the teaching in 1st through to 3rd year. The 3rd year courses provide most of the BPS accreditation (4th year project completes it) and hence we are required to maintain the material taught in these modules. Furthermore, the 3rd year timetable is also set: the joint degree students complete 6 or the 8 half-semester modules and the two methodology modules over the course of two years and this is only possible if the timetable stays the same from year to year.
