Preparing for Module Choice

Undergraduate Students

Many undergraduate students entering at Level One have the opportunity to choose some of the modules (also referred to as units of study) that they take in their first year. Information about these modules can be found by clicking on the link below.

Choosing your modules

Postgraduate Taught Students 

Postgraduate Taught students will be advised on any choice of units at an Introductory Academic Meeting with your academic department. A full year's curriculum (180 credits) must be approved by your department and endorsed on your Unit Form before you can attend your registration event. A full-time student must take 180 credits on a Master's degree programme, 120 credits on a Diploma programme and 60 credits on a Certificate programme. You will not be able to register for less than a full year's credit load (usually 180 credits) if you are going to study full-time. We recognise that some choices will be provisional and, if necessary, changes can be made subsequently during the Add/Drop periods at the beginning of each Semester.

Please note that Postgraduate taught students should not attend the Undergraduate Module Enrolment Event in the Octagon Centre during Intro week. Instead, you should have your choice of units approved by your department before attending registration.

Postgraduate Research Students 

Full-time research students whose target degree is PhD, PhD with Integrated Studies, MD or DDSc will need to take units within the Doctoral Development Programme (DDP). Part-time PhD and MPhil-only students are also encouraged to participate in the DDP, where appropriate.

Languages For All

If you are on a programme where there is no unrestricted module choice, or if you wish to study a language but don't require credit for it, you can apply to study additional language modules on a 'not-for-credit' basis.
