    Module Registration 

    IMPORTANT - Module Registration during Induction week.
    DEADLINE FRIDAY 18th SEPTEMBER AT 5pm

    By the end of this week you will have watched presentations or attended group meetings online for your course. You will also have had a chance to speak to your Academic Adviser, and possibly  some of your Module Leaders in your subject meetings. You should, therefore, be aware that you will need to choose two optional modules for the coming year; details of these choices will be given in your subject meeting  as well as information on the content and assessment of these modules.

    Once you are fully enrolled you will be able to access your programme of study through your Student Information; there you will see your 6 compulsory modules already added.  You have four modules in Semester 1 and two modules in Semester 2.  You can therefore see that you need to add the two optional modules for Semester 2 to make up your programme to the required eight level 4 (first year) modules.

    The links provided here will take you to:

    • The Student Information User Guide which will help you through the process of adding your module choices (page 71). The rest of the guide is also useful for you to familiarise yourself with your Student Information.
    • Step by Step video instructions to adding your modules a video tutorial to help you add your modules on Banner through your Student Information.
    •  You have until the deadline at 5pm on Friday 18th September to add these 2 modules.  If you miss the deadline you will be allocated modules. These may not be the modules you would have chosen.  Modules cannot be changed after the deadline.
    If you need help your Student Support Coordinator (SSC) will be available online all day on Friday 18th September from 9am until 5pm to help with any issues. 

    You can go to your Google Mail and use Google chat to have a short conversation with your SSC - use their email address to find them on Chat.
    If you would prefer a Google Meet to talk to your SSC you MUST send them an email requesting an appointment and they will then send an invite to your Google Calendar. 
    These meetings will be limited to 10 minutes as they will be in high demand, so please have your module choices made before the Meet and we can then help you to add them to your programme.

    Please try to add your modules first before requesting a meeting. You have all week to do this so please DO NOT leave it until the last minute.

    Please remember you should not have more than four modules in a semester. Additional charges will be made for students taking more than eight modules in an academic year (unless the ninth module is a Language module).
