Survey modules

These generally provide an overview of a large geographical region and/or a long time span and are taught over two terms, normally by weekly 1-hour lectures and discussion classes (of c. 15 students).

Assessment is usually by one coursework essay of 2,500 words (25%) and one 3-hour examination (75%). In addition, tutors will require students to make other contributions, including informally-assessed written work.

Please note that one-term only affiliate students take the 15-credit versions of Survey modules. The assessment pattern for these half-year versions are listed on the UCL Module Catalogue pages, the main 30cr versions are hyperlinked below.
