Guidelines on the completion of the Module Entry form
- This is your opportunity to choose your optional (restricted, alternative and free choice) modules for the next academic year. Please note that completion of this form does not guarantee your place on the modules you select: it may not be possible to schedule your choices into your timetable to be clash free and additional enrolment criteria may apply. However, it is important that we gather as much information as possible on what you would like to study in advance of creating your teaching timetable.
- If applicable, you have already been enrolled onto the core modules for your programme and these are included on this form: if you think that the information is incorrect, please make a note of this in the free text box provided.
- Please make sure you submit the form by the deadline – 10am on Monday 25th September 2017 - to give you the best chance of securing a place on your chosen modules. During the first two weeks of the Autumn semester you will have the opportunity to make adjustments to your optional module choices if you wish (change of mind period), subject to availability and timetabling restrictions.
- Once you have selected your optional modules, it is your responsibility to ensure you submit the form by the published deadline. By submitting your form you are confirming that you have selected modules which are suitable for your programme of study.
- If you do not submit your module choices by the deadline, any selections you had already entered in the form will be taken as your submission and it may not be possible to make changes to these at a later date.
How to complete the form
- Please complete the form with details of your chosen modules for the year. Make sure you enter and complete all the information that has been asked for and take care to select the correct module(s) from the list. The optional module choices can be put in preference order. You may go away and come back to working on the form as often as you like and any entries you have made will be saved automatically. Your place on a module is not reserved until you submit the form. Once you have submitted the form your choices will be locked down and you will not be able to make further changes until the change of mind period.
- Some of the modules have a limited number of places. If the module is already full you will not be able to select that module.
- You will have received specific instructions and further guidance about the requirements for your programme of study. If you have any queries about this please contact Student Services.
- If the instructions you have received in relation to your programme of study ask you to provide additional information you should use the free text box for this purpose.
- For undergraduate students, your modules should normally total 60 credits per semester and not less than 50 or more than 70 per semester. To determine how a Full Year module contributes to the number of credits in a semester check the credit split for the module in the Module Catalogue.
- For postgraduate students, your choice of modules should normally total 120 credits for the taught stage with no more than 80 credits in one semester.
- It is your responsibility to ensure that your choice of modules conform to the University Regulations (including the University of Nottingham Qualifications Framework) and the regulations for your course. Failure to do so may prevent you from progressing to the next stage of your programme or from graduating.
- If you are unsure about which optional modules you can choose, please consult the relevant programme specification at: http://programmespec.nottingham.ac.uk/nottingham/asp/course_search.asp. This gives details of your programme of study.
- You can consult the online Catalogue of Modules to view details of the modules available in the next academic session. The draft Catalogue is available at: http://modulecatalogue.nottingham.ac.uk/nottingham/asp/main_search.asp. The catalogue is updated on a regular basis if module details change.
- Please look at the University’s Qualifications Framework for details of the value and level of credits required at each stage of your studies.
- The Nottingham Advantage Award is an additional accredited programme of modules, designed to help you make the most of your extra and co-curricular activities and enhance your employability skills. To apply for Nottingham Advantage Award modules you should go to: http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/Careers/Students/AdvantageAward/index.aspx for information and module application forms. It may not be possible to schedule your choice of NAA modules to be clash-free in your timetable.
Confirmation of choices
- After submission, Student Services Centre staff will check and approve your choices. If there are additional criteria to fulfil before your enrolment can be approved you will be informed of this.
