What modules can you study?

Exchange students have a huge variety of modules to choose from when they study at NTU. Discover what modules our academic schools offer and how to contact us for more information.

At NTU the individual units you study are called modules. They may be called courses or classes in other universities. Exchange students will need to take 60 credits (30 ECTS) per term or 120 credits (60 ECTS) over a full academic year. You will normally select modules from the second year of an undergraduate programme.

It is important for you to choose your modules carefully and make sure to select alternative modules in case your first choices are not available. Your home university exchange coordinator will liaise with you and approve your module choices. Our exchange and study abroad students are taught alongside home and international students taking full degree programmes.

Please note that you will not be able to mix modules across different Schools. Modules are subject to change but our academic Schools can provide further information if required.
