Module choices and changes

If your programme includes optional modules, you will have already been asked to choose your optional modules online. To help you make informed module choices, full module details and programme regulations are available online.

You can change your module choices online through MUSE during the three week add/drop period which starts on the first Monday of each semester.

Sitting in on modules for which you are not enrolled

During the three week add/drop period you may attend modules for which you are not enrolled to help make decisions about your final module choices.

Outside this period, you may NOT attend classes for modules for which you are not registered. If you want to access module content in Blackboard for a module for which you are not enrolled, you should contact the relevant module leader and scharr-tel@sheffield.ac.uk to request guest student access.
