Courses are often referred to as modules.

We do not recommend mixing modules from too many different departments or year levels as you are likely to encounter timetabling clashes.

Please choose 60 credits (30 ECTS) per semester. This is the maximum course load for which you will be registered.

Please note that level 300 courses are final year courses at Leicester. To register for a 300 course you must have a substantial background in the subject area.

It is your responsibility to ensure that modules taken at Leicester can be taken as an accredited part of your degree programme.


Some courses are restricted to students majoring in that subject or have specific pre-requisites.

All courses are subject to availability and may change without notice. All departments reserve the right to refuse students' course choices.
