Undergraduate Programme and Module Handbook 2024-2025

The Handbook includes the programme regulations for all undergraduate degrees offered by Durham University. You can use the regulations to check which modules are compulsory on your programme, and which are optional. To find the regulations for your degree programme, use the Programme Lists facility below.

Programme regulations should be read in conjunction with the Core Regulations for Undergraduate Programmes.

The Handbook also contains descriptions (including information on the content, teaching and assessment) for all current undergraduate modules. For guidance on using the handbook, including a glossary and FAQs, please see our Programme & Module Handbook pages in sharepoint. You can also access the Undergraduate Progression Flowcharts directly.

Please note: the module and programme information here is for current modules and programmes. Modules and programmes do change year-on-year, and are amended to take account of, for example: changing staff expertise, disciplinary developments, the requirements of external bodies and partners, and student feedback.
