Preparing for module enrolment

Planning for module enrolment can make the process smoother and help you get the modules you want for next year. Follow our steps to help you prepare.

For some modules there may be competition for places; a good plan will help you if you're not able to get your first choice.

If you anticipate any access issues, for example relating to disability, please discuss this with your School before module enrolment begins.

What can you do to prepare for module enrolment?

1) Review your course structure

Look up your course (also known as programme) to see what modules you may take in the next academic year. Your module requirements will be listed in the catalogue for your programme.

Any compulsory or optional modules should be listed under the relevant year. You'll see whether you can take discovery modules or not.

2) Check your programme timetable

When choosing optional/discovery modules, you need to ensure that they won’t clash with your compulsory modules. Please check your personal timetable and compare it with the timetable for the module you are interested in.

You can check the individual module timetables by clicking on the links provided on the Module Catalogue pages.

3) Check module requirements

Some modules have pre/co-requisites. This may mean you've had to do a previous module, or take another module at the same time. You'll see these listed against a module entry when you're in the Module Catalogue. Make sure you fulfill any requisites before you enrol on your module. If you are unsure, please contact the teaching School.

4) Consider alternative choices

Some modules are very popular and places can be filled very quickly so consider what other modules you may wish to take should you not be able to get on your first choice. Why not write down the codes and titles of all of your choices before you enrol?
