What are optional/open units?

Optional units are units provided by the School of Economics, Finance and Managment (EFM) which are complementary to, and form a key part of, your programme.

Registration on EFM 'optional units' is via an online OPTION FORM which guides you through the process and lists the units available to you.

The deadline for submitting this form is Wednesday 5 September, 11.59pm (British Summer Time). 

Open units are from a broad list, covering subjects from across the whole University.  You select open units via an online selection process that happens in Welcome Week from 9am Monday 24 September until midday Wednesday 26 September.  You will be notified by email and text message when the Online Open Unit Selection web page is live.

Browse the units available on your programme.
