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.

Seeking Modules Offered by Other Departments?
Places on modules in other departments are subject to space and eligibility. Students must ensure that the module is open to external students and that there are no pre-requisites. Information on modules offered by other departments can be found in the UCL Module Catalogue.
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.
HPSC postgraduate taught modules are available only to students enrolled in UCL postgraduate programmes, such as taught Master's programmes. MPhil-PhD students may be given permission to attend, at the tutor's discretion.
