Module Registration Departmental Meetings

Please find below details of the Schools/Departments that will hold meetings for incoming Erasmus and visiting students in January 2017. All other students should go to the School to which they have been accepted where the secretary/Executive Officer will be able to advise which academic staff member you need to meet with to discuss module choices.

Once you have chosen your modules and received sign off for each from your School, you must bring your Module Enrolment Form to the Academic Registry for input on your records. Please remember that this service operates from 09:30 – 14:00 only.

All students must submit their Enrolment forms, including Change of Mind, by the 27th of January and are not permitted to have clashing modules. Students who enrol after this period, or have clashes on their record, may face problems with examinations and incomplete transcripts.
