Module Information

University Guidelines on Module Choice

New students make their module choices during Intro Week. Continuing students make their module choices towards the end of the academic year via the on-line system. Module choice is made in accordance with the SEAS Programme Regulations. The Senior Tutor makes the final approval on module choices; not all choices are possible.

Modules offered in SEAS

Not all SEAS modules run every year. It is important to check the most recent list when making your module choices. All module choices are subject to electronic application and approval through ‘My Record’.

A complete list of SEAS modules, including language modules, can be found here.

According to regulation 17 of the General Regulations for First Degrees, students may only register for Level 1 modules at Levels 2 and 3 with special permission. This includes modules from the Institute for Lifelong Learning (modules that begin with an ACE code).

In SEAS, University procedures are modified as follows:

  • With the exception of language modules, level 1 modules may NOT be taken at level 2 or 3.
  • With the exception of language modules, level 2 modules may NOT be taken at level 3.
