Admission requirements for individual modules

For those who want to take an individual module (contract teaching), the minimum requirement is a second-level teaching qualification. As a contract student, you may under certain circumstances also take courses that fall outside your field of qualification.

If you're still in the process of obtaining your second-level teaching qualification (part time or full time), you will only be granted permission to take individual modules from the master's degree programme in exceptional circumstances and even then always in consultation.
