Allowable degree credit options 2022-23

In the charts below you will find a list of allowable Degree Credit options by department. 

These charts are accurate to the best of our knowledge, but the final decision on Degree Credit options rests with your department. Some specific degree programmes may also have certain restrictions. If you have any queries regarding your options, please contact your departmental administrator. 

You may take a module for Extra Credit or Non-Credit each year you are studying as an undergraduate at Imperial College. 

The only exceptions to this are that MBBS and BMB students in Year 3 and MBBS students in Years 5 & 6 are not permitted to take Horizons modules due to clashes with clinical or lab placements.
