Selecting optional modules gives you the opportunity to focus your degree on the subject areas you are most interested in or are hoping to get into following your graduation. It is important that you select your optional modules as early as possible as class sizes are limited and modules can reach their capacity quickly.
Module descriptions can aid you in choosing your optional modules as they include the aims, learning outcomes, syllabus, reading lists and assessment components of each module. Module descriptions are available for you to view within your programme handbook; this can be found within your programme area of MyLearning within MyUniHub. They can be found towards the end of the handbook. Module descriptions can also be searched and viewed via MyUniHub. A step by step guide on how to do this can be found here.
Full Time undergraduate students that are required to select optional modules for next academic year will need to complete the online module registration form. If you are a part-time student, postgraduate student, direct entry student or currently undertaking a placement year, you are exempt from this form and will not be able to complete it. However, we will contact you directly via Unihelp Online (to your university e-mail account, so please do check your account regularly).
Some programmes do not offer any optional modules and therefore students on these programmes are not required to engage in this process. You can see if your programme offers optional modules by consulting your programme handbook. Programme handbooks are available via the programme area of your MyLearning pages within MyUniHub.
If you think you need to select optional modules, but you cannot complete the form and you haven’t received an e-mail outlining how you can select your optional modules, please contact us here and insert the subject of “Module registration – exempt”.
