    This is a live meeting where you can get to know your AA and some other students on your course. Click on the link below at the time stated.

    There will be an opportunity during this meeting, to make an appointment for a one-to-one confidential chat; or you can email your AA after the meeting.

    IMPORTANT - Module Registration during Induction week.


    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.

    NOTE: A few subjects have a full programme of 8 modules for year one and therefore don’t need to do this

    The links provided here will take you to:

    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.

    How to contact your SSC for module registration

    • 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.
