    Is it better to do a course with a larger number of modules (8 per year) or a lower number (3/4) per year?

    Doesn't make a difference. The more modules the less content per module.

    Really?

    I thought maybe it is better to have more modules so you can study a wider range of topics rather than being limited to 3 per year... plus how would you extend three modules for a whole year?

    By covering more in-depth content within that year rather than spreading it over 2-3 years.

    Yes it really doesn't make a difference. What are you wanting to go into after your degree?

    I think that's more of an issue than how many modules you have.

    So it would be better to do more modules?

    Atm looking at Cardiff University (love the city), which in first year is 6 (20 credit) modules, second year 3 (40 credit) modules and then final year 4 (30 credit) modules OR Southampton Uni (not so keen on the city) which offers 8 modules per year (15 credits each)

    More credit means more content or it's harder in some other way. They're all the same.

    I'm kinda concerned about it though, are you sure it would be pretty similar?
