How to Search for Modules (Classes)

ASA students may search for modules (classes/courses) and their descriptions, as well as timetables, on Oxford Brookes' online "Modular Handbook."

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING HELPFUL INFO BEFORE USING THE MODULAR HANDBOOK.


1. Students will take 4 modules per semester. It is possible to take a 5th module, with permission from Brookes. You must have a total of 7-8 modules approved for credit by your home school, in case of schedule conflicts.

Most single modules are worth 7.5 ECTS or 3.75 semester credits. (1 ECTS Credit = 0.5 semester credit.) Students who take the usual 4 single modules per semester should earn 15 semester credits in one semester.  Some classes are "double modules" which means they are worth 2 single modules (so, a total of 7.5 U.S. credits per double module).

2. When you search the Modular Handbook, Y14 refers to the 2014-2015 academic year.  Searching under Y14 will give you modules that are offered in Fall 2014 & Spring 2015. Then, each module description will say if it is offered during Semester 1 (Fall), Semester 2 (Spring) or both.   

3. Stage I modules OR those labeled Level 3/Level 4 are freshman/sophomore or lower division modules.  Stage II modules OR those labeled Level 5/Level 6 are junior/senior or upper division modules. Stage II modules are generally for students who are majors in that field. Stage I modules normally have no pre-requisites or fewer pre-requisites than Stage II modules.  Level 7 (postgraduate) modules and Honours modules aren't open to study abroad students.

SEARCHING THE MODULAR HANDBOOK
There are THREE different ways you can search for modules:

a & b. "SUBJECT SELECTION" OR "MODULE GROUPS SELECTION" - These have drop-down lists of the various fields of study (courses) available at Oxford Brookes.  First, choose your desired subject area, then choose the academic year you're looking for (ex. Y14 is 2014-2015).  Finally, click "Show Page." This will show you all of the modules offered in that course (degree) during the academic year you've indicated. Remember: Semester 1 = Fall; Semester 2 = Spring.

c. "MODULE SEARCH" - This allows you to search BY KEYWORD. Enter your keyword (i.e. biology, marketing, music, etc.) into the 2nd box, then specify your academic year. If you're going abroad during the 2014-2015 academic year, be sure to enter, "01-Sep-2014" to "31-Aug-2015."
