Departments have an Intranet facility to record students module selections throughout the year. When students pick up Enrolment Packs they include a Module Selection Form which the student completes and returns to the Home department to confirm the choices are appropriate before recording the modules selected..
Students are allowed to change modules for a limited period at the start of each module by completing and returning a Module Selection Authorisation Slip i.e. Before the end of the second week of a module finishing in December/January and before the end of the fourth week for modules finishing later in the Academic year, normally in May/June.
Please note, six weeks after a module starts it cannot be dropped unless the Dean authorises the change. Late module changes should be sent to Student Records to process as it may involve charging a fee for additional modules.
Module pre-selection is compulsory and the exercise should be completed by continuing students before the end of session. Please note module availability and syllabus rules should be completed before students are asked to pre-select next years modules.
After students complete their selection departments can download next year's Module Selections into a spreadsheet to review and where appropriate amend student's module selections. Pre selected modules is used to draft the University's Teaching Timetable and enable Academic departments to plan ahead preparing teaching materials, tutorials, etc. based on expected class size.
Annually administrators in Academic departments are asked to review existing module details, make amendments and ensure the list of available modules is updated for next year using the Intranet. Please note the status of all modules being taught next year must be set to "Available" before students can pre-select the module. The deadline for completing amendments to other information, such as the Description, Learning Outcomes, Reading Lists, etc. is MARCH. Please note all NEW Modules should be approved by a Faculty Quality Committee by MARCH
The Intranet Course Maintenance and Programme Creation facility may be used by departments to record compulsory and optional module rules and to submit programme specifications for approval. Approved programme specifications are later used to create new programme and course records and apply module selection rules to students.
Please note module information is used for module pre-selection for continuing and new students. The information is also published on the Course A - Z pages and used for teaching timetabling purposes. Therefore modules must be available and specified as compulsory by MARCH
