Choosing your modules*

You will be able to start selecting your module choices for this year online from Wednesday 24th August. Instructions on how to do this can be found here: Online module choice guidance (postgraduate). We strongly advise you to complete your module selection by Friday 16th September, to ensure that you get your first choice. Online module registration closes on Friday 23rd September.

Please select the modules that you wish to sign up to as soon as possible. Doing this quickly will give you the widest choice – popular modules fill up very quickly.  If you don’t choose your elective modules in good time, the modules you wish to take may be full.

  1. Look at the Business School Module Descriptor pages for information about each module. Don’t forget to look at modules offered by other Colleges (see College websites for more information) if you would like to take a subject outside the Business School, such as a foreign language.
  2. Go to the Online Module Selection page where you will find instructions on how to choose your modules.

International Students

If you are an international student you will need to make sure you register with the University promptly on arrival, so that you gain all of your IT access, to register on your programme and your modules. For more information about your arrival for international students please take a look at the International Students’ Freshers’ Week Programme 2016.
