Themed pathway module suggestion lists

These lists illustrate the kinds of modules that suit each pathway. The PDFs have web links directly back to module descriptions.

Dissertations and independent studies

Students wanting to do a discipline dissertation should direct any queries to the module convenor of the relevant dissertation module. 

Students wanting to undertake Independent Study in final year may wish to consider taking one of the following:

FCH3888B (15 credits)

FCH3888E (30 credits)

For some disciplines only the 15 credit variant is available (See Online Module Selection Discipline Guide for more details).

You will need to contact a potential supervisor appropriate to your field, and confirm that they are willing to supervise the study. In consultation with your supervisor you will need to complete the necessary Independent Study Approval Form, and submit it at the beginning of Autumn term in the 2022/3 academic year.

Lower level modules

Students wishing to take an option module at a lower stage e.g. a level 2 module in stage 3 will not normally be able to request this during OMS. If you want to take a lower level module and it is not available as part of your selections in OMS you must wait for the module change window to open in July when you can submit a module change request.

You will also need to complete a lower level module request form. Please download this Lower-Level Module Request Form (FCH Students Only) and fill it out - you must email this to before you fill out your module change request - otherwise it will not be processed. 

Students going on their placement year in stage 3

Students currently on a 4-year programme are due to go on their placement in stage 3. Your 120 credit placement module will be applied to your record by the FCH Administrator. Below are the modules currently in use by Colleges.

Online Module Selection will be open for you so that you can select back up modules in case your placement does not go ahead next year.
