A catalogue of modules from our faculties

Studying abroad at the University of Portsmouth is an amazing opportunity to explore a different city and culture – but it is also a chance to study the subjects and topics that interest you most.

You can search for these modules by their code or name on our module catalogue. When you make your application, you'll submit your module choices and these will be considered by the relevant department.

Modules are either taught in Teaching Block 1 or Teaching Block 2, and this is indicated below. The 2024/25 academic calendar year can be found on our key dates page. Modules could also be taught in different academic cycles:

  • First is Undergraduate level
  • Second is Postgraduate Taught courses (Master's)

Important information

We will endeavour to deliver courses and modules in keeping with the course and module descriptions on our website, but reserve the right to change the content, timetabling, administration and other organisation of courses, subject to maintaining equivalent academic and quality standards.

From time to time the modules you have selected may not be available due to timetabling clashes, spaces on the modules, pre-requisites requirements and module or course availability. The University will work with you to find alternative arrangements that are suitable for you and in such instances will support you in securing approval from your home institution to undertake the alternative modules. You can read the full terms and conditions for exchange and study abroad module offering.
