What is an MOMD?

MOMD stands for Module Outside the Main Discipline

A Module Outside the Main Discipline is a module that can be taken alongside your main degree programme, allowing you to explore a different discipline during your undergraduate studies. There are over a hundred MOMDs to choose from, worth 10 and 20 credits.

Who can take an MOMD? 

Undergraduate students are required to complete 120 credits each year of their degree programme, but in some cases, the home department will only provide students with 100 credits each year.

  • Students who are are required to make the remaining credit up must register for an MOMD.
  • Not all students need to take an MOMD. Please ensure that you have checked to see if your degree programme requires you to register for an MOMD. A list of programmes that include an MOMD element is available (PDF - 203KB), but if your degree programme does not appear in the list, it isn't a guarantee that you are not required to sign up for an MOMD. If you are in any doubt, please contact your home department for confirmation.
