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

Online Module Add/Drop will be available from 08:00 on Monday 6th February until 17:00 on Friday 24th February 2017

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.


Your core modules will already be listed when you access the online add/drop screens. 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.

Information Provided By Your Department

You may need to make your choice of optional modules according to advice provided by your academic department. Additionally, you may be required to follow supplementary procedures in your department for choosing and being allocated to modules, prior to making your request online. For example, some departments have their own procedures for arranging add/drop approval. If this is the case, then please only enter modules for which you have received prior approval.

Late Requests

The on-line application system will close on Friday 24th February 2017. Requests submitted after the deadline date will require special approval from your department. Please download and complete a late request form and take this to the relevant academic department (See Downloads - available from 27 February 2017).

Your Student Module Record

Following online approval, your record will be updated within 24 hours. You should check your record via the MUSE portal. It is your responsibility to ensure that your units are correctly recorded.


Once your student record has been updated, you will be able to access teaching materials made available by departments via MOLE. Please contact the relevant academic department for more information about what is available, or if you experience any difficulties accessing material for modules that have been approved. Please note, removal from MOLE is not an automatic process. For more information, please contact your academic department.

When To Download A Form

Distance Learning and those registered with the Department of Lifelong Learning should download and complete a paper form (see Downloads). 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.
