  • A 40 credit foundation module covering aspects of the subject you want to study at degree level;
  • A 20 credit module which covers more specific aspects of your pathway;
  • A 20 credit module to give you confidence in dealing with the essential numeracy skills required for your degree subject;
  • A 20 credit project module which will relate to a topic you want to study in more depth and help develop your research skills;
