Your degree is made up of modules, these are classes which focus on a particular topic within your degree subject. Unless otherwise stated, all of your modules are core.
The majority of modules at Ulster University London and Birmingham branch campuses are worth 20, 40 or 60 credits. These credits go toward your final degree award. As a general rule, 1 UK credit equates to 10 hours of work.
Your degree programme may feature a 0 credit but compulsory module(s). These are designed to either:

Teaching is delivered through lectures, seminars and tutorials. Lectures are formal teaching sessions, often with a larger group of students. Seminars, which usually provide a form of follow-up to lectures, take place in smaller groups and are often used to promote group discussion about a specific topic. In tutorials, a small number of students meet with a tutor to discuss work and to raise points of particular interest or difficulty.
