Modules for Teaching Period 2 Students

Students coming to study at Aston for Teaching Period 2 only are required to take 30 ECTS credits, which is the equivalent of the modules studied by our Undergraduate students.

Examinations are held at the end of each Teaching Period. Students are expected to be at Aston during the examination period. Transcripts will be sent directly in the post to home institutions for collection by students, after marks have been confirmed by the relevant Examination Board. Electronic copies will also be emailed to home institutions.  

Most of the modules available to TP2 exchange students run from January to June, 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 2 only, examining the second half of the module. Please note that the assessment may differ to the that on the module specification. These modules are indicated by a "1&2" in the TP column.

All modules, apart from those beginning with LK, are worth 5 ECTS credits to students coming for Teaching Period 2 only, regardless of the length of the module. You will need to choose 6 modules in total.

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.


The 2017/18 modules for the Exchange programme are now advertised below.  

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 already have 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. Please note that these modules (along with module BL1128 Law for Business) are worth 7.5 ECTS credits. Therefore, agreement from your home institution to take more than 30 ECTS credits must be obtained prior to selection of these modules. Please also note that the teaching period in which each of the modules beginning with 'LK' will run in 2017/8 is currently subject to change.   

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.)
