To those at uni, how many modules have you had this semester?

And more generally, are they all in your subject area or can you look outside youyr main department. I know some degrees let you do subsids, in first year at least.

Mine are all from my department though, we couldnt chose much at all- if you hadnt done Alevel maths/physics or chemistry you had to do remedial modules to get you up to scratch, then there were 2 other vaguely broader ones to make up a choice if you still had a slot spare.

I've done:
  • Basic Skills for Earth Sciences (15 creds) think this one carries on into next semester aswell though... kinda like tutorial style.
  • Climate, Ocean and Atmosphere (15) (my one choice. was this or Ocean Biogeochemistry)
  • Earth Structure and Plate Tectonics (15)
  • Basic (yeah right):mad: Physics for ES (15)
  • Sediments (7.5)
  • Fossils (7.5)
  • Minerals (7.5)
So thats a nice grand total of 82.5 credits this semester. :eek2:
And 5 exams the first week back then another the wednesday after. I really should go revise!

Rocks seems to think this is a lot. So im curious.

So how about you?

    I had five psychology and two optional modules (had to be from outside of psychology).

    *Cognitive Psychology
    *Individual In Society
    *Introduction To Cognitive Neuroscience and Biological Psychology
    *Statistical Methods
    *Pratical Methods
    *Moral Philosophy
    *Self, Mind and Body Philosophy

    Next semester I have the same five psych modules (my exams are in May and they're worth 20 credits each) and two different optional modules:

    *Feminist Philosophy
    *Chance In The World (Philosophy)

    Each of my philosophy modules are worth 10 credits each, twenty in total each semester.

    Hmmm... I'm doing a degree in Finance and Accounting and this year, i take 6 modules, over both semesters...

    Introduction to Business
    Introduction to Financial Reporting
    Information Technology and Business Research
    Accounting for Management Decisions
    Developing Business Skills
    Economics for Business.

    Seeing as it's 120 credits per year, i'd assume that they're 20 credits each. Though having said that, i've got no idea because i haven't been told anything about credits at my uni =/
