Across the 2 years of study, students must take the following courses:

c) 50 credits of optional courses. These must include:

d) 60 credits of the programme compulsory core final project courses:

The programme compulsory core courses and the shared core courses introduce students to skills and concepts that will assist them when studying optional courses and the project. Therefore, we encourage students to take the three programme compulsory core courses, along with as many of the shared core courses as possible, during year one.

Please aim to ensure that your credits are equally balanced across both semesters in a year. This is to ensure student workload is balanced.
