A booklet giving details of, as well as restrictions on, course options will be available for students entering the degree programme to facilitate advance planning.
Elective course availability will be subject to student numbers. While every attempt will be made to allocate students to their preferred elective course choices, where demand is high, we cannot guarantee this. Students should check course details for timetabling information and location as courses are taught at a number of sites across the University.
It is important to note that due to restrictions associated with the current Covid19 pandemic it is possible that in the coming academic year elective courses with low student enrolment may not run. Location and format of delivery may also be subject to variation.
Students may also wish to make use of the interactive programme builder PATH to help inform their decision regarding course choices (https://path.is.ed.ac.uk/).
