Can a 1st year student take level 2 modules??? I'll be doing IR, and there's so many level 2 modules that I'd like to do, but I'll be abroad for that year.. Possible??

It's not particularly recommended, but I don't think there's anything specifically prohibiting it. It'll depend on your department's specific policy though.

Bear in mind that (usually) for courses with a year abroad, when you come back to the UK you'll be doing the level of modules equivalent to the year you've missed, so quite possibly you'll have level 2 modules to look forward to when you come back.

Apparently not, because the 2nd year is counting.. So you kind of get past that level while abroad.
Oh well, I realised that most of the modules I like aren't running anyways this year.. Which is very annoying!!

See you're doing the MSci too! I'm hoping to do that in 2009 entry. As far as my reading goes, you could do them online if they're allowed by U21, or perhaps late in Yr3 if you're really interested in that particular module, but I'm e-mailing the Uni in a couple of weeks (on holiday till then). Have to post any replies here

There's a certain amount of modules that you can do when abroad, but I don't think it's that many... In year 3 I think I'd prefer doing modules that are on my level...
