The following information relates to students on the Undergraduate Modular Programme. For all other courses of study, please contact the Course and Student Administration Team.
You may wish to change your subject of study if you consider your original subject(s) is unsuitable. If you are considering changing subjects, we would advise you to speak to the Subject Co-ordinator of the programme you are interested in before formally requesting the change. A change of subject is subject to the availability of places and to the approval of the Subject Co-ordinator of the new subject, who may wish to specify conditions that you will need to meet before you can formally make the change.
If you wish to change course in the immediate period after enrolling on a new course but before the enrolment deadline for the course you are seeking to join please complete an M300 form. Before making an application to change course, you should always consult someone such as your current Student Support Coordinators or the Careers Service to discuss your options. Please note that acceptance onto a new course will be subject to confirmation that you have met the admission requirements and that there is space on the course you are seeking to join. Please see the ‘ how to apply’ webpages for details of the entry requirements and how to contact our admissions team.
Please also contact the Subject Coordinator(s) from the new subject(s) that you wish to enrol onto and ensure that you are making the request for sound reasons.
If you are a Tier 4 student please seek advice from the International Student Advice Team to see if any potential implications for your student visa can be accommodated.
Once submitted the M300 form will require authorisation from the Admissions team, International Student Advisory Team (where applicable) and the Subject Coordinators from your current and prospective course.
Once the enrolment deadline has passed, it is not possible for new students in the first year of their course to change subject in their first semester of study. However a request can be proposed for consideration at the January examination committee for the second semester (or in June for January enrollers).
You can request a subject change via your 'Record and Results' page on PIP by clicking on the 'Request change' link next to your current programme title. Once your request has been submitted, it will be considered by the Subject Co-ordinators of your current and proposed subjects and your Academic Adviser who will decide whether to approve it or not.
If, for some reason, you are unable to make the request using your PIP page, you should contact Student Central for a copy of the M101 form and organise for the relevant tutors to sign it to indicate their approval.
Once you have been accepted onto your new subject, you may also need to make amendments to your programme. Please seek advice from your Academic Adviser or Student Support Co-ordinators if you are unsure about which modules you need to add.
You may wish to change your subject or course of study if you consider your original subject/course is unsuitable.
