Part-Time & Modular/Flexible Study


Part-Time and Modular/Flexible Study

Full-time students study for 37.5 hours per week during term time. Typically, lectures and seminars occur on two days per week. Part-time students normally attend half this amount.

Part-time students (aiming to complete the programme of 180 credits in two years):

Students on this mode of study should aim to follow the study pattern below: 

Part-time Year One (60 credit taught modules)Part-time Year Two (60 credit taught modules)
CASA0005 (15 credits) - compulsoryCASA0007 (15 credits) - compulsory
CASA Optional Module (15 credits) - CASA0013 recommendedCASA0001 (15 credits) - compulsory
CASA Pathway modules  (30 credits needed)

CASA Pathway module  (15 credits)

 CASA OR UCL Elective Module (15 credits)
 CASA0010 Dissertation (60 credits)

These students can take up to five years to gain 180 credits to complete the programme.

The student registers at the start of every academic year, and chooses (via Portico) which modules to study in that academic year. The action of making a module choice generates an invoice from the Fees Office.

It is possible for a modular/flexible student to enrol onto the programme at the start of the academic year but decide not to take any modules in that year and defer study to another year. They will pay no fees for that year, but will remain an enrolled, registered student of UCL.

NB: Several Optional modules require particular core modules to be taken first – see study order below:

The following modules require CASA0013 to have been taken or the student to have equivalent programming experience: CASA0002, CASA0003, CASA0011
CASA0006 requires CASA0007 to be taken first
CASA0023 requires CASA0005 to be taken first
CASA0008 requires CASA0001 to be taken first

NB: The Dissertation module is intended to be a final activity of the programme and should be left to the final year.

NB: All Modular/Flexible students MUST re-enrol every autumn until they complete their studies, regardless of whether they intend to actively study that year or not. Student registration must remain current, otherwise it will be assumed the student has left the programme.
