Year 4

Important Notes:
  • Students must take units totalling 60 credits for the year, normally 30 credits in each semester.
  • Students must take at least 24 credits of ES (i.e. economics) units (including compulsory units).
  • Students must take at least 24 credits of MA (i.e. mathematics) units, of which a maximum of 12 credits can be at level 2. When choosing level 2 units, students may only pick those units they have not previously taken in Year 2. Furthermore, when opting for 12 credits at level 2, students can either choose two level 2 units in Semester 1 by selecting from list B1 below, or one level 2 unit in Semester 1 from list B1 followed by the associated level 2 unit in Semester 2 from list B2 below.
  • Students can select MA units at level 4 but should consult the unit lecturer and be guided by appropriate prerequisites.
  • Students must check the teaching timeslots (pdf - link opens in new tab) when choosing Mathematical Sciences units. To minimise timetable clashes, you should not choose more than one unit from each timeslot within the same semester.
