Modules for Teaching Period 2 Students

Students coming to Aston for 1 term must study 30 ECTS.

Most of the modules available to TP1 students run from September to January, but some run over the whole academic year. In the case of these modules, a special assessment will be set for exchange students who are here for Teaching Period 1 only, examining the first half of the module. These modules are indicated by a "1&2" in the TP column. Please note that the assessment may differ to the that on the module specification.  

Please note: credits associated with modules in this section refer to the number of European Credit Transfer system (ECTS) credits that will be awarded to students on passing each module. Although partners use the ECTS credit rating to work out the workload of their students at Aston, they should NOT use ECTS grades. The Aston local results are far more representative. 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Some module descriptions are not yet confimed and may be subject to change over the summer. Module choices are not guaranteed as timetable clashes may occur. In this instance you will be informed and advised to make alternative selections.

Subject areas for each module are as follows: 

BF    Finance or Accounting                                   BM    Marketing

BH    Work and Organisational Psychology            BN    Operations & Information Management

BL     Law                                                                BS    Economics and Strategy

LK     Business and Government/Sociology

Modules beginning with the number 2 ie. BF2210, BH2212 are taught to Aston Business School Second Year students.  If you are in your Final Year of study, you may have already covered some of the topics within these modules.

Modules beginning with the number 3 ie. BF3300, BH3393 are taught to Aston Business School Final Year students.  If you have only completed one year of your current degree programme, you may not have sufficient background knowledge to take these modules.  Please ensure that you check the module specifications in order to decide if the module is suitable.

Students can only take one Business & Government or Sociology module (module codes start with LK) in each teaching period.  

Some of the modules below will have pre-requisite requirements which you may not be able to take at Aston University.  If this is the case and you believe that you have the requirements necessary to take  the module, you may select it. Please remember the onus is on each student to ensure that they have the background knowledge.  If you require further information on a module, please contact the Module Leader directly (their contact details will be in the module specification.)
