Each Undergraduate level of study (0*, 4, 5, 6, and 7 for an Integrated Master’s) consists of modules that together must have a total value of 120 credits. Modules typically have a value of 20 or 40 credits, or occasionally 10 credits (the credit value is confirmed in your Programme Handbook/Module Guide).
You must always check that you are studying the correct number of credits. If you are unsure, refer to your Programme Handbook/Module Guide or talk to your Programme Team (including your Personal Academic Tutor (PAT)) as soon as possible.
* If you are studying on a Foundation Year (Level 0), this is a year designed to prepare you with the essential and specialist skills and knowledge needed to support your progression through your chosen Undergraduate degree. Foundation Years do not carry credits, but you will need to complete the equivalent of 120 credits in order to progress to the next level of study (Level 4).
Find out more about the building blocks of Undergraduate programmes in Section 1.4 of Your Guide to Undergraduate Assessment and Award Processes.
