Module registration

Module registration for continuing students opens on 31 March 2021 at 9am and has been extended to close at 11am on 30 April 2021.

Please ensure you select your modules by 30 April - with the pandemic still creating uncertainty, it is vital we know who to expect on campus for modules in September. Social distancing may be required, as such we must know module numbers so the timetable can be prepared. 

Module registration for new students will open in September. Your Registry Office will contact you with further information but you should also keep an eye on the Student Hub homepage for news and alerts too.

For more detail on module registration, refer to the section on Course Structure in the Academic Regulations (Undergraduates Section 17, 3.2 and Postgraduates Section 18). This provides information in the section Guidance: Student Responsibilities – Module Registration.

Full-time undergraduate students

Most full-time undergraduate students will need to complete their module registration online. Your Registry Office will email you to confirm the process.

Your core modules are automatically registered and depending on your programme specification you will need to register for optional modules.

Before the module registration process opens online, think carefully about the modules you'd like to study – spaces on modules are limited and will fill up fast. When you've completed your online module registration, you will not normally be permitted to make any changes.

For more detail, refer to the section on Course Structure in the Academic Regulations (Undergraduates Section 17, 3.2 and Postgraduates Section 18). This provides information in the section Guidance: Student Responsibilities – Module Registration.

Some full-time undergraduate students will need to register their modules by completing a Module Registration Form rather than selecting modules online - your Registry Office will email you with details.

The deadline for you to choose your optional modules has been extended to 30 April 2021. If you don’t complete module choices by 30 April , these will be chosen for you by Academic Departments by the University and changes will not be possible in most cases.

Changing your module selection

If you have registered for a module but need to change to a different one for a valid reason, you must do so in accordance with the procedures outlined in the Academic Regulations particularly in the section "Guidance: Student Responsibilities – Module Registration".

Changes are considered only in exceptional circumstances and must be submitted before the end of the first week of teaching in a semester. You will not normally be permitted to change a module once delivery of that module has started. Registry may require you to submit supporting information from you in order to be able to consider any changes. Students will not be able to register for modules that have reached student capacity. Module Leaders cannot guarantee a place on modules that are full as there are implications for timetabling that must be considered.

Requests to change a module registration after the first week of teaching will only be considered where:

  • The original module cannot be accommodated within the validated course structure; or 
  • A part-time student has a verified conflict between a selected module and work obligations; or 
  • The University acknowledges that the published module information is misleading.

If you need to change your module registration choice for a valid reason, please contact your Registry Office directly.

Please note that where the procedure for a change of module registration is not followed, or the request not accepted, you will remain on the original module and be subject to the assessment requirements for that module.

Students retaking modules

If your mode of attendance for the forthcoming academic year is 'PTR' (module retriever) unfortunately you have not passed enough credits overall to progress to the next level of your studies/complete your studies with your intended award, so you will be a module retriever for the next session.

You may need to register for a retake/defer module/s or have outstanding re-assessment/s that you need to complete in the next academic session. You will not be able to re-enrol until you have completed your module choices.

Your registry will be in touch with you directly to register for your modules. If you have any questions, get in touch with your Registry Office.
