STS offers over 100 modules in our full catalogue. STS Module Catalogues are published annually which list the modules we plan to offer in the upcoming academic year. We rotate our modules to make sure we offer the best possible teaching, so some modules are not run every year.
Please note that the list of modules given here is indicative. This information is published a long time in advance of enrolment and module content and availability is subject to change.
