Module Availability

Some modules, particularly the Introduction to Astronomy, run every year, but others at HE levels 4, 5 and 6 are offered according to a rota. We endeavour to ensure that all our students have modules to which they may progress, but they will need to consult this module availability for planning their future studies.

The module availability for 2023/24 is now available .  The running of modules is subject to adequate recruitment each year.

Note: Subject to validation (Feb 2023) 

  • AA1056 will be replaced after 2023/24 by separate physics and maths modules AA1054 and AA1062.
  • AA3055 will be optional and first run in 2025/26.

Our next planned review of the module availability will be in February 2024.
