The module catalogue has been designed for those students who apply to study at Newcastle University as part of an Exchange Programme (specifically the Erasmus Programme and the Non EU Exchange Programme) or the Study Abroad Programme.
In order to be able to choose modules correctly, you will need to understand terms which are used in each module description:
Stage 1: This means that the module is for Level 1/Year 1 undergraduate students . These are introductory modules, designed to provide a basis for more advanced and specialised modules.
Stage 2: This means that the module is for Level 2/Year 2 undergraduate students . These modules assume substantial understanding and aim to both broaden and deepen knowledge of the subject matter.
Stage 3: This means that the module is for Level 3/Year 3/Final Year undergraduate students . These modules form the highest level of undergraduate modules and provide highly specialised instruction.
Study abroad programme: students generally choose modules from Stage 1 or Stage 2; for stage 2 modules, students would need to be a major/be enrolled in a degree programme in that subject area, and have taken at least 2 relevant courses in that area.
Only in very rare cases will students be able to take stage 3 modules; in all cases should they communicate with the International Office prior to selecting that module on their application form.
Exchange programme: students generally choose modules from Stages 1, 2 and 3, enrolment in the latter depending on previous experience/classes taken in the subject area.
Exchange and Study Abroad Students must study 60 credits in a Semester. For a full year student this would mean studying 120 credits in total.
Erasmus Programme: Students applying as part of the Erasmus Programme must only choose modules from the subject area listed in the institutional Erasmus Bilateral Agreement.
