Module choices

Module registration is part of the process of managing your own programme of study, selecting the modules that you intend to study in a particular academic year/s.

There are designated registration windows to add and delete your modules for the next academic year according to your study level and the time of the year when you started/will start your course of study. The links below will provide you with further information and guidance regarding this process. Please remember that it is your responsibility to register your modules during the appropriate times.

What type of student are you?

Please note, special circumstances refers to exchange or Erasmus students, students returning from temporary withdrawal, students with unconfirmed placements or funding, or students moving from Foundation years to Stage I.

Tips for picking your modules

Changes to your modules are not permitted outside of the registration windows or appropriate amendment periods so it’s very important to make your selection carefully. Please consult your Student Support Co-ordinator/Academic Adviser if you have any queries or need advice regarding your available options.

Here are some useful tips to help you make the best choice.

  • Don’t leave your research and decisions to the last minute. Take some time to talk to your Student Support Co-ordinator or Academic Adviser who will help you consider your options. Book an appointment with them early - you can speak to them before the module registration window opens.
  • Research carefully the modules available for you including content, delivery method, location, assessment and teaching hours.
  • If you’re starting to think about or have clear ideas about what career you’d like to pursue after graduation, consider carefully the modules you are selecting and ensure they fit with your ambitions. If you’re in doubt, talk to your Academic Adviser.
  • Make sure that you choose the modules that meet your study level and award requirements in the correct order. If you have any queries, your Student Support Co-ordinator or Academic Adviser will be able to advise you on this matter.
  • If you have a disability or specific learning difficulties including dyslexia, dyspraxia/DCD, attention deficit disorder or dyscalculia, the University offers support from the Inclusive Support Service. You are welcome to seek their advice when making your module selection.
  • Consider what else is important to you or affects your ability to study, eg work, childcare, sports.
  • Sometimes modules change slightly year on year. Make sure you select the right module for where you are in your programme. This is especially important if you have taken time out for any reason, including temporary withdrawal, year abroad, switch from full time to part time, etc.
