Every module offered by the Department has its own 'module descriptor', which are all listed in the handbook:
|The year after next||http://newton.ex.ac.uk/handbook/nextyear/nextyear/modules/|
Two formats are available: (a) the University's 'pink and blue' template, described in the TQA Manual (Module Descriptor Template: Guidance for Completion); (b) the Department's version, which contains additional information e.g. when exams and tests will occur and the deadlines for marked work.
Only books that are in print should be specified as the core text. There should normally be just one core text specified for undergraduate modules and at least one copy will be available in the University library, and the University bookshop will be asked to hold stocks. The core text may be referred to frequently during the module and students must ensure that they have access to a copy. A full list of all core and supplementary texts is generated automatically.
At least one copy of books listed in the supplementary reading section will be available in the University library for students to consult.
