Senior Freshman - BESS

In the Senior Freshman year students must choose modules equivalent to 60 ECTS credits. View Module Outlines.

The BESS programme offers students the ability to select their own degree path, a unique feature of the BESS programme. Therefore there are module requirements depending on which degree pathway they wish to pursue. These programme requirements are included below.

In March/ April students must decide which degree path they wish to follow from the ten options below. Once students have chosen a particular path they must maintain it, in order to fulfil the degree path requirements, for the following years of study. Students do have a very brief period in Michaelmas Term to change their mind but once this deadline has passed student must then maintain their degree path.
