Are you unsure about the modules you have chosen for second semester? Do you fancy studying something outside of your core degree discipline and boost your employability prospects? Now is the ideal opportunity to sign up for a University College course starting in semester 2, before you get busy with holiday plans and revision for January exams.
All this week we are in the iZone, ground floor of University Place where you can help yourself to a course guide and find out what courses we offer for 2nd semester.
This Friday, we will be holding a University College Coffee Drop In, in the Atrium 1st floor University Place 10am-2pm. You can simply drop in (no need to pre-book) and speak to a member of staff to find out more about University College and to have any of your queries answered. Whilst you have a coffee you can find out the benefits of University College, details of the 25 different courses we run in 2nd semester, and you can sign up to a course there and then! Below is some information, but make sure you come along this Friday to find out more about University College.
What is University College?
The University College for Interdisciplinary Learning gives you the opportunity to broaden what you study whilst at University and to go beyond your degree programme. We offer course units that enable students to challenge conventional thinking, allow students to locate their knowledge in the wider world and make University of Manchester graduates more employable. Our courses also connect teaching to current, cutting-edge thinking and research. Student feedback about College units has also been excellent. These are credit-bearing courses, so these will count towards your degree mark and be within your 120 credits for the year. This means taking a University College course does not increase your workload!
What do I need to do to sign up?
If you have a free-credit choice, for 2nd semester we have 25 different courses you can sign up to covering subjects such as: Global Challenges, Enterprise, Culture and Community, Citizenship and Society, Languages, and Science. Head over to http://www.college.manchester.ac.uk/ for a list of all our courses, the course details and to sign up to your chosen course. If you have any questions then come and see us in the Atrium this Friday, where we can also sign you up.
