Do I need to choose modules?

Nearly all our courses have a completely compulsory first year so most students will receive a complete personal timetable after registering on e:Vision.

Typically a full-time student can expect to study 120 credits a year, and a part-time student 60 credits. It is possible to check how many credits you are enrolled on by looking under ‘View your modules’ once logged onto e:Vision.

Timetabling will automatically timetable compulsory modules. There are a small number of courses for which there are optional choices to make in the first year. This will apply whether you are starting your course in September or January. If you are new student who has transferred directly into the second or third year of your course, you are likely to need to select optional modules.

Please select the option below which applies to you:

I am a new undergraduate or postgraduate entrant in my first year

Please check the chart below to see if your course is one of those which does require you to choose modules in your first semester/trimester. If your course is not on this list, you have a complete timetable and do not have to do anything further.
