These subjects will be organised into option blocks based upon the timetable, with the intention of giving students flexibility and allowing common combinations of subjects. Popular subjects are often available in more than one option block, reducing class size and avoiding potential clashes.
Our course offering is dependent on the number choosing the course. Where there is insufficient interest in a course, that course will not be run.
