Core modules are compulsory for the named MA programme but can also be taken by students from other programmes as an option module.
Module choice forms will be distributed in late August. There may be the opportunity to take modules offered by other departments. Contact the relevant department for more information. Students from outside English should contact firstname.lastname@example.org if they wish to take a module. You can view the timetable for an individual module via the Timetabling Gateway
Please note that modules may not run if they are undersubscribed, and ballots may need to be held for modules that are oversubscribed. You may change your mind about the modules you choose, before they start.
