Course choice information

In the second and final year of your degree, any module within UCL is open to you, so long as the choice is consistent with your Pathway objectives, and subject to the following important constraints:

  1. You meet the prerequisites for a module, e.g. you could not do year 2 modules in History of Art without one of the first year modules. Please note that although we aim to prepare you for a very wide range of choices in each department, there may be some modules at second and third year level which are not available due to prerequisites.
  2. The modules chosen fit in with the other modules on your timetable.
  3. You are fulfilling the degree requirement of taking at least one ‘science’ or ‘quantitative’ module each year and at least one ‘non-science’ and ‘non-quantitative’ module each year. (Note that you may be able to fulfil this part of the degree requirement through the BASc core modules).
  4. Your Personal Tutor approves the choice of modules. This is to ensure that you work towards a coherent selection of modules which complement each other and which allow for your best academic progression.
  5. The class has sufficient space to accept you.
  6. You have checked the 'Selecting your modules' page to ensure the module is open to external students.

Second year course choices

The structure for Year 2 means that you can select modules to fit any one of the following example combinations:

One core + two electives + language + 3 major + 1 minor = 120 credits
One core + two electives + language + 2 major + 2 minor = 120 credits
One core + one elective + language + 4 major + 1 minor = 120 credits
One core + one elective + language + 3 major + 2 minor = 120 credits
Two core + one elective + language + 3 major + 1 minor =  120 credits

Module descriptions for the Core and Interdisciplinary Electives can be found online.
