Choosing your unit

Is there something that really interests you? A topic that you haven't had the opportunity to study before?

UCIL offers you the opportunity to choose a unit, from a broad range of topics, that you can study as part of your undergraduate degree.

UCIL units draw upon the best teaching talent across the institution and employ innovative teaching, learning and assessment models.

Not sure where to start?:

  • Look at the different units on offer each semester. Many units have a short introductory video by the lecturer giving you an overview of the unit;
  • Search by skill in Semester 1 or Semester 2. For each unit we have highlighted some key skills you will develop. If you are keen to develop a specific skill eg Leadership or Communication, you can use the search function in the units section. As with all academic units, most UCIL units will enable you to develop academic skills including critical thinking, research and written communication;
  • Choose a unit leading to the MLP or Enterprise Challenge which will give your CV an extra boost.

Most UCIL units are open to undergraduate students with a free choice option in any year of study. However, there are some exceptions and you should always check with your School or programme regulations to ensure that you are eligible for the unit you would like to study.

See individual unit pages for information on eligibility and how to register.
