What happens in the 3rd year of a degree? I heard people say that you can take 3 modules instead of 5 and whichever module you're best at you don't go to lessons for that module. I confused.
Is this the same for all degrees? Or it varies?
Can someone please explain this? I'm confused.

The world implodes.
Seriously though, it varies by degree programme and course. You're best off going to your universities' subforum (if one exists) and ask there. Ideally stating your course.
What I think you're referring to is what is called a dissertation. This can be a single or double module and consists of an extended piece of written work (often around the 8k mark, sometimes lower and often higher). You usually chose area to focus on and the title although it must be related to your subject, of course. There are usually no lessons as such, but you will need to meet with your supervisor occasionally. Some may have workshops, particularly if doing an empircal subjects which means using things like SPSS.Last edited by River85; 28-03-2011 at 21:40.
