8. Structure of Degree Programmes (16/17)

The following pages outline the compulsory and option elements for each programme for each year of study for all the physics degree programmes for the current academic year. This structure may be modified in future academic years as a part of a process of curriculum review and development.

Continuing students should choose their options by early August, having consulted their personal tutor before leaving Manchester in June. First year students' options are chosen in consultation with their personal tutor at the start of the year. Changes must be agreed with the personal tutor no later than 2 weeks after the start of the appropriate semester. You are also required to enter your options on the student system, by the end of the second teaching week. Please ensure that these are the same as those you have agreed with your personal tutor. Variations involving the compulsory elements of a programme are only allowed in exceptional circumstances and must be agreed with your Programme Director.
