    How a subject is offered

    How a subject is offered or how many activities you are required to attend to complete the requirements of a subject can be seen by clicking on the icon found on either the flat or grid timetable view.

    In some instances students may be required to select components from all indicated activity types, in other instances specific activities may be grouped into sections.


    A section groups the activities that comprise a subject’s required delivery. If a subject has sections, all activities selected by a student for the subject must be within the same section.

    Searching for a subject

    Using the wildcard (%)

    To look for activities without knowing all the activity code details you can use the wildcard symbol - % - to replace one or more characters of the code

    Searching by Faculty

    To look for activities from a certain Faculty, select a faculty from the drop-down menu and this will produce up to 150 subjects from that faculty numerically. To find more subjects from that Faculty either refer to the Handbook or start a new search using the first two figures of the last subject given followed by the wildcard - %.


    When searching by subject code:
    015% - will find up to 150 activities beginning with the code 015 (ie. 015410)

    When searching by subject name:
    %Management% - will find up to 150 activities with ‘Management’ in their name (ie. ‘Law for Marketing Management’)

    You can use more than one wildcard:
    50%_AUT% - this will find up to 150 activities beginning with the code ‘50’ and offered in the ‘Autumn’ teaching period.
