In addition to enrolling on a specific programme, you will also enrol on modules:

  1. Full-time undergraduate students normally take modules totalling 120 credit points each year. Commonly there are three 20 point modules in the Autumn and three in the Spring Semester, but modules may have any value in multiples of five points and may be spread across two semesters.
  2. The number of modules for postgraduate and part-time students varies according to the course being undertaken.
  3. Where modules are compulsory these are pre-printed on the front of your enrolment form.  Optional modules for the full academic year must be selected by you in consultation with your Course/Subject Director or Studies Adviser at the enrolment sessions held at the start of the academic year. Optional modules are recorded below the compulsory modules and can be continued on the back of the enrolment form. You should keep a record of those modules for which you have enrolled.
  4. You are permitted after enrolment to change optional modules provided you complete a module amendment form, obtain a signature from your Course/Subject Director or Studies Adviser to indicate approval and submit the form to a Registry Office to make the approved changes not later than the end of the second week of Semester one (for Semester one modules) and within the first two weeks in Semester two (for Semester two modules).

You should not sign your enrolment form until the time of enrolment when you will be asked to do so in the presence of the Enrolment Officer.

The signing of the enrolment form also includes the following declaration:

“I undertake as a student of the University to comply with the Charter, Statutes, Ordinances, Regulations and Rules of the University as are from time to time in force.”

“I consent to the University processing information about me, including my Student ID Photograph, for administrative purposes, but only insofar as it is permitted to do so within the constraints imposed by the Data Protection Act 1998.  In particular, I understand that the University may continue to use this information after I cease to be a student of the University. The information which I have provided is complete and accurate.”
