Module Choice for Continuing Students

On this page, you will find essential information on choosing your modules for the next academic session. Online Module Choice (OMC) is part of the Registration process into the next academic year. Please read carefully the information below and and take the necessary action as required.

The information on this page only applies to you if you are an undergraduate student who will be continuing with your studies and whose programme of study includes module choice in the next academic session.

The information on this page does not apply to you, and you need not take any further action, if:

  • you will be completing your studies this summer;
  • all your modules are core to your degree and you have no additional module choices to make. We will notify you when it is time for you to fully register online in July;
  • you are a student in the School of Languages and Cultures and will be going on a period abroad. You will receive information about module choice directly from your department;
  • you are going on a year abroad or taking a year in industry as part of your degree programme;
  • you are a student at the Department for Lifelong Learning. You will receive information about module choice directly from your department;
  • you are a part-time student;
  • you are completing studies at the University of Sheffield International College
  • you are a student returning from a Leave of Absence (please contact your department directly to discuss your module choice for your next year)

Online Module Choice for Continuing Students with Module Choice:
From 8.00am Monday 29 April 2019, you will be able to access the Online Module Choice (OMC) system via your student MUSE account. Log in to MUSE and click on the myServices tab then click on Online Module Choice. If you click on Online Module Choice before 8.00am, you will not be able to access it.

You need to complete online module choice between 8.00am Monday 29 April 2019 and 5.00pm Friday 17 May 2019. You can use any computer to do this.

Please be aware that carrying out your module selection online does not lead to full registration; online module choice is the first step in registering for next year. You will need to complete the registration process once you receive your exams results. We will notify you of when you can complete your registration at the same time as we inform you of your exam results.


Your core modules for next year will already be listed when you access OMC. Once you have chosen your optional modules your department will check and approve these. If there are any problems you will receive an email from your department advising you what action to take.

Information from your department

You must read the information on these webpages in conjunction with information given to you by your department, as you will need to make your choices according to advice they have provided you with.

Please note MLTC language modules are available at all levels from Level 1 (F4) to Level 4 (F7). When searching for Modern Languages Teaching Centre modules (MLT), please leave the ‘Level of Study’ field blank

You may be required to follow supplementary procedures in your department for choosing and being allocated to modules, prior to confirming your choices of modules online. If this is the case, then please only enter modules to which you have been allocated on the online modules choice screens; you should not choose different ones.

Registration for the Next Academic Session

Module choice is the first stage of the online registration process and must be completed in order for you to be able to register for next year. Carrying out your module selection online does not lead immediately to full registration. You will be asked to complete the online re-registration process once you are in possession of your exam results; we will give you instructions on how to do this at the same time as we inform you of your examination results.

Students currently on Leave of Absence

Your module choices will be dependent upon several factors, including the point at which you started your Leave of Absence and the progress you made on your course before taking leave. It is important, therefore, that you seek advice from your department about which modules you should be taking when you come back to your studies.

Whilst you will not be able to register until your Leave of Absence has officially ended we will endeavor to give you access to the module choice system where possible. For students who are unable to access this for whatever reason, we will add modules manually which may take a little longer at busy times.
