Online Module Add/Drop

The Online System for Module Add/Drop

The system can be accessed via MUSE. Log in as normal and go to the My Services tab / View all services for the link to the online system (under M - Module Add/Drop). Follow the simple instructions on screen. Please note that this is available to all full and part time undergraduate and postgraduate taught students. Distance learning students and those registered with the Department of Lifelong Learning will need to use the paper form (see Downloads). Further guidance can be found below.

Full & Part Time Students

During the first three weeks of each semester there is an opportunity for you to add and drop modules that you have chosen previously as part of registration processes, in accordance with the regulations for your programme of study. This is commonly referred to as the 'add/drop' period. Before completing the add/drop process it is a good idea to check the regulations for your programme of study.

The Spring Semester Add/Drop period opens on Monday 4 February at 8am and will run until 5pm on Friday 22 February 2019. Students wishing to add or drop modules will be able to do so at any point during this time.

Full time students (including full time postgraduate taught students and those registered on the ERASMUS or Study Abroad schemes) and part time students should request to add or drop modules by using the Online Add/Drop system. The online system is accessible through your MUSE account (available via 'View All Services').

Once you have entered and submitted your request to add and drop optional modules, your department will check and approve, or decline, your choices. You will receive an automated email, confirming when your record has been updated. If there are any problems with your choices, you will receive an email from your department advising you what action to take. The online system will close on Friday 22 February 2019. If you submit a request after this time you will need to complete the paper form and receive special approval from your department.

Distance learning students and students registered with the Department of Lifelong Learning will need to use the paper Add/Drop form, available to download from the website. Please read the instructions on the form carefully and ensure that all fields are completed and changes are approved and signed off by the relevant department.
