LJMU divides its modules into 4 levels: 

  • Level 4 is the first year of university – these modules are introductory and would not normally be appropriate for incoming students with previous experience in the subject. 
  • Level 5 are second year modules – these would be suitable for incoming exchange students on undergraduate degrees 
  • Level 6 are final year degree modules which would be suitable for experienced incoming exchange students 
  • Level 7 modules are Masters level – these would not normally be appropriate for incoming bachelors students  
Although every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this information, we cannot confirm that all modules will be available and scheduling of taught sessions may constrain your choice of modules.
