Syllabus Library for HPSC modules

All HPSC modules have a syllabus. This functions as an owner's manual, with course plan, schedule of activities, assessment, reading list, and other essential information. STS provides a Syllabus Library for all current modules and an archive for past offers. If you don't find what you're seeking, simply ask.

Seeking Modules Offered by Other Departments?

Places on modules in other departments are subject to space and eligibility.  Unless otherwise specified, to reserve a space or discuss a specific module’s requirements, you must contact the departmental administrator by email in the relevant department and request a place.  If you do not do this, you may be rejected from the course if it is full or not appropriate.

HPSC Modules for Students in Other UCL Departments

Almost all our modules are available to UCL students from other departments. You are welcome. Please note for some modules there may be limited space.  In these cases priority will be given to STS students, and places may be capped.  Modules may be subject to change.

Students should register via Portico. The UCL common timetable provides information on times and locations.
