Student in libraryHow many Independent Study or Dissertation credits can I take?

Within Flexible Combined Honours, you can take a maximum of 60 credits overall of Independent Study and departmental dissertations during your degree.

You cannot do more than 45 credits overall of departmental dissertation and Independent Study in the same academic year. 30 is the usual and the recommended, as otherwise it places rather a large proportion of the final year on the student.

The Independent Study module exists in variants of 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 credits. See module descriptions for details.
