I was wondering whether universities run extra modules that you can do that aren't a part of your degree and would be unrelated, i guess run as extracurricular activities.

For example, if I were to take a chemistry degree, would some universities have extra modules in Computer science or finance that I could take that could be separate from my degree or do would I have to look at short courses online outside of the university?
Thanks

(Not sure which forum category to put this under)

Some unis offer modules from other subjects as optionals, but part of the degree. I seem to recall Sheffield offer a wide range in year 1. I cant see why unis should put on extra courses for fun as they cost money and take up resources. You might find you get lectures ad hoc or some discussion if you join a departmental society.

I guess so. I've heard that Imperial do run some extra lessons in programming/coding for everyone at a basic level, well at least for chemistry. (But not sure how this works)

my uni has these modules that are "universal"
it means that if you have optional modules and they fit with your timetable, you can take modules in literally any discipline
you can take pretty much any language and in my first year I did an astronomy module
