MSc in Theoretical Psychoanalytic Studies
Flexible/Modular students can spread the five MSc Modules over a period of up to five years. The Programme Tutor meets with all students at the beginning of the academic year to discuss a plan of study.
Students must select the modules they wish to take in each academic year by mid-October via Portico. It is important to select the correct modules as tuition fees are charged pro-rata depending on the number of credits taken in each year.
Module selections are subject to the approval of the teaching department. You will receive an automatic email to your UCL email address if any of your selections are rejected and you must ensure that you respond to this by contacting the departmental office in your parent department, whom you should also contact if you wish to amend a selection at any time.

There are no rules about the number of modules flexible/modular students must take each year, but once selected students are committed to attending and completing all the related seminars and assessment in that academic year. The dissertation must be selected in the final year of study.
Although a flexible/modular student's workload is lighter and attendance is less than that of full-time students, it is ESSENTIAL that students keep ALL Friday afternoons (from 12.30pm) and Saturdays free during the academic year as seminars are scheduled at any time convenient to the teachers during those periods, rather than assigning 'flexible/modular' and 'full-time' teaching periods. This is especially important for those students who may be negotiating time off from their employment to attend the MSc on a part-time basis.
