Brief summary of provision for individual modules
See glossary for an explanation of terms.
The University offers individual modules of the MSc degree, Postgraduate Diploma and Postgraduate Certificate in Livestock Health and Production and Veterinary Epidemiology and Public Health as credit and non-credit bearing individual modules on a stand-alone basis. Shorter individual modules which are non-credit bearing are also offered. Individual modules accommodate either 35, 50 or 240 notional study hours. A student may take any number of individual modules but only two relevant 240 hour individual modules may be counted as credit towards a Postgraduate Diploma or MSc degree, or one relevant 240 hour individual module may be counted towards a Postgraduate Certificate.
A student may choose whether or not to be formally assessed in the credit bearing individual modules for which they are registered. Each 35 hour individual module will be assessed by either a short answer paper or an assignment. Each 50 hour individual module will be assessed by a written assignment and each 240 hour individual module will be assessed by an assignment and a three-hour unseen written paper.
