A-Z list of all open units in 2016/17

Please note: you are viewing unit and programme information for a past academic year. Please see the current academic year for up to date information.

Open Units are units that are outside of the student's subject discipline and that any student can take (i.e. not have any pre- or co-requisites), subject to space and timetabling constraints. Single honours undergraduate students are normally able to choose up to 20 credit points of open units. Select a unit for full information, including descriptions and assessment details.

It is possible that open units appearing on this list will be unavailable if capacity has been taken up by students taking it as an optional unit.
