Modules on offer
At the University of Leicester we call the individual units that you will study “modules”. They are sometimes called classes or courses at other universities.
As a Study Abroad student you can apply for modules from a wide range of academic fields. Please refer to the subject lists below to find the range of modules available for the academic year 2022/23. Where possible, we would advise you to discuss your choices with your home university before you apply.
Please note that the modules listed are subject to change, and the delivery of their content and methods of assessment may vary.
Online module application form
Shortly after your acceptance, we will send you a Module Selection Guide to provide further details on how to choose modules, assessment patterns and module combinations, as well as subject-specific information. In order to request your modules, you will be asked to review this Guide and fill out our online module application form. We will then send the list directly to the relevant academic department, along with your transcript, so that they can consider your request.
If a department is not be able to approve a module request, we will try to place you with one of your alternative choices. We will be in touch with you through email if we require more alternatives.
You will be sent your personal provisional module list prior to your arrival. You will be able to fully confirm your module selection during Orientation Week.
If you have any questions, please email the Study Abroad team.
