The Undergraduate Modular Handbook is an online tool for you to research and select your modules for each semester. When you have found the modules you wish to take, please note the course codes as you will need to include these in your application.
There are two ways to search the handbook:
Level 4 ModulesThese modules are introductions to a particular subject, and are appropriate for students wishing to sample courses outside of their own subject of study. These can be taken without having completed pre-requisites. Oxford Brookes students normally take the level 4 modules during the first year of their three years of academic degree studies. Exchange and Study Abroad students are welcome to apply for Level 4 modules outside of their own major subject.
Level 5 Modules These are more in-depth classes in a particular subject, usually also referred to as “Advanced” modules and very often have prerequisites. Oxford Brookes students normally take the level 5 modules during the second year of their three years of academic degree studies. We recommend Exchange and Study Abroad students to apply for Level 5 modules mainly in their own major subject area. Level 6 ModulesThese modules are the most advanced modules. Level 6 "Honours" modules are normally taken towards the end of the degree programme and may include a project/dissertation type modules. Oxford Brookes students take the level 6 modules during the last year of their academic degree studies. We recommend Exchange and Study Abroad students to apply for Level 6 modules only in their own major subject area.
Pre-RequisitesIf the module description lists pre-requisites which refer to other Oxford Brookes modules, we will liaise with the faculty at Oxford Brookes after your application to obtain approval for your study programme.
Single Module A single module carries 7.5 ECTS credits and requires 150 hours of student study for successful completion. A single module is usually 1 semester in length, but sometimes can go over 2 semesters.
Double Module A double module is worth 15 ECTS credits (twice that of a single module). A double module normally runs over two semesters, but can in some cases run over one semester. If you wish to take a double module in one semester, please be aware that you will only be able to study two other single modules, giving a total of 30 ECTS credits each semester. If a double module you are interested in runs over two semesters and you are studying at Brookes only for one semester, you can not take the module.
Independent Study Module These modules are normally not open for exchange or study abroad students.
