Find out about the different types of modules and how to select the modules that will make up your programme of study.
Your degree course will be made up of compulsory, optional and discovery modules, all of which have a credit value which you need to earn to progress on to your next year.
How to enrol on your modules
If you are studying on a programme which requires you to choose optional or discovery modules, you will complete this process online through Student Services.
When to enrol on your modules
Module enrolment takes place at the start of term for new students and in May for returning students. When you enrol for a module it is automatically downloaded to your timetable and VLE. You will have the chance to speak to someone in your school face to face at a module event at the start of each term.
Modules and programmes explained
Every programme of study is made up of modules which can be either compulsory, optional or discovery modules. All modules have a credit value and you will need to complete sufficient credits to progress through your programme.
As well as the compulsory and optional modules that make up your programme of study, you can choose something different to your main subject as a discovery module.
Change of module
Once you have started your studies, you may decide you wish to change one or more of the modules you've registered for and there is a process to do this.
