Level 3 course units 2011/2012
Course units are worth 10 credits unless otherwise stated.
Third year students are reminded that many level 4 course units may be taken in the third year, subject to prerequisites. This requires the approval of the Senior Tutor.
Third year students may either do a one-semester (10-credit) or a two-semester (20-credit) project. Normally, a student may not undertake a one-semester project in each semester.
A joint honours student will not be permitted to do a project if, by doing so, the mathematics content of the third year would amount to less than 40 credits. On some joint degree programmes this might mean that students cannot do a project in both subjects.
A student may do a project and also take a course that covers related material but the overlap must not be large since, in terms of content, the project will be judged on the non-overlapping material.
Further conditions may be found in the documentation on the Undergraduate Projects Page. There you will find details of how to choose a topic and supervisor, how to register the project, and details on what you are expected to produce. You will also find a list of Project Topics.

Course units are normally available to students on all programmes (subject to any restrictions in the programme and to prerequisites). Course descriptions give details of prerequisites.
You should look at the provisional timetables to see if any choice of options you make will clash.
MATH39991 Career Management Skills usually takes up one afternoon.
* An enhanced version of these course units is available at level 4 and both course units may not be taken.
