Course outlines

Please refer to the programme structures for information about the course units which are available to your programme this academic year.  Towards the end of semester two, first and second year students can start to consider their optional courses for the next academic year.  A course outline for each course available can be found via My Manchester.

The information provided is provisional and some amendments have to be made between then and the beginning of the new academic year due to changes in teaching staff. You must therefore consult this site again before you choose your options, on the student system, in July to make sure you are aware of any further changes.

Details of course aims, learning outcomes, and content will be available at introductory lectures for each course unit, which you should ensure you attend, and are also available in the course unit outlines.

At the beginning of the semester, you will also be able to download from Blackboard more detailed course unit descriptions, including full reading lists, details of how formative feedback will be delivered, the nature of the coursework assessment required, dates and instructions for submission of work, arrangements for marking and feedback and the consequences associated with failure to comply with the submission dates. Any student who does not receive this information should contact their Programme Director.
