The University of Essex Module Directory is updated annually in April.
The availability of modules, their content, methods of assessment,
teaching staff and so on may be subject to review and change. Although some modules can be taken
on an individual basis, the majority exist as integral elements of courses and may
therefore not be available independently. External visitors to the Module Directory
can obtain further information about the availability of modules and courses from
the Admissions Office.
Should you have any queries about the Module Directory pages, please contact the Course Record Team, Systems Administration Office, Academic Section; email: crt (non Essex users should add @essex.ac.uk)
