Inbound Exchanges and Visiting Students modules

From chemistry, computer science and criminology to music, mechanical engineering and marine biology… whatever your subject, we have modules to inspire you.

Choosing your modules

At Hull you will study three modules per semester. We will also ask you to identify some additional modules in case some modules are not available during your time with us. After we receive your application we will share further details on how to apply for your modules.

Browse our courses for a flavour of what modules are included in our degrees. For more details on a specific module or more information on what modules may complement your studies contact us at incoming-mobility@hull.ac.uk.

Module exceptions

  • Psychology or Law modules are only available where a direct agreement exists between your department within your university and the University of Hull

  • Certain Social Work and Youth and Community Development modules are unavailable due to DBS checks required (working with vulnerable people/children)
  • Unfortunately, we do not offer exchange opportunities on our Medicine programmes

Credits for modules

You should take 60 credits per semester. This usually equates to 3 modules, although there are some language courses that are only 10 credits. The total number of credits you should take are:

  • Full year: 120 credits (equivalent to 60 ECTS credits)
  • One semester: 60 credits (equivalent to 30 ECTS credits)
