  1. On-line Module Registration

    This actually registers you for modules (you are already pre-registered for compulsory modules, which means that most first years do not need to do anything about this, except check that you are indeed registered for the correct modules). You register on-line using the Portico system. Your choice of modules has to then be approved on-line by both teaching department (if you take any modules outside Mathematics) and parent department. Some departments require that you do some registration procedure with them - please check on relevant web-site.

    For any queries, please see Dr. Mark Roberts, Maths Dept Room 604A, phone: (0)207 679 2833 or e-mail: m.l.roberts AT ucl.ac.uk
Options for Students going in year 2/3/4

As can be seen from the specific degree structures page, all students on Mathematics degrees have some options in year 3, and most have an option in year 2.

To help you choose your options, please see the Degree Structures and Options page.
