In your first year (called Stage 1) you take 12 modules over two semesters i.e. 60 credits; you can study 3 or 4 different subjects. In order to qualify to progress in a given subject you need to have taken and passed at least 10 credits (please note some subjects have additional progression rules. See below). We strongly recommend that you take 20 credits in at least one subject; many students take a further 20 credits in a second subject.

The remaining 20 credits can be used to explore other subjects in a variety of ways; take more credit in the subjects already chosen, take a fourth subject or take two electives.

If you have entered through a one subject degree, (eg Economics (DN510) or English with Drama (DN5120) you will be pre-enrolled to at least 20 credits in your chosen subject You will then need to select your remaining subject(s).
