Information for Level 1 Undergraduate Students

List of Important dates for 2017-18

New Level 1 Students

Welcome to Sheffield and the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences. We look forward to welcoming you to the University in person during Intro Week. Intro Week takes place from Monday 18 - Friday 22 September 2017.  Further informaton on registration events can be found on iSheffield.

Online Module Selection

As a new student, you will receive an email from Registry Services from 30 August 2017 asking you to complete Online Module Selection by Sunday 10 September 2017, as part of your Pre-Registration Tasks. By completing Online Module Selection, this will speed up the registration process in Intro Week, therefore we encourage students to complete this. If you are unable to complete Online Module selection, you will be able to have your module choices approved in Intro Week at the department’s Introductory Meeting, which takes place on Monday 18 September at 1.30pm.

For all Animal and Plant Sciences (APS) degree programmes you will be required to take some compulsory (core) modules and to choose other (restricted) modules from those provided by the Dept of Animal and Plant Sciences. In addition you will have unrestricted modules of 20 credits. If you wish to take these unrestricted modules as APS modules that you have not already chosen, then you can choose them as part of Online Module Selection. However, if you wish to take modules from another department, you cannot choose these online, you will need to attend the Module Enrolment event in the Octagon Centre on Tuesday 19 September 2017.
