Module registration for students from other UCL departments

Students from other departments at UCL (incl. non-SELCS Affiliates) are welcome to request SELCS modules on the understanding that:
•   They have permission from their main department at UCL to take a module within SELCS
•   There is space on the module
•   There are no timetable clashes with their other modules
•   Students meet any prerequisites required by individual modules (please check module descriptions for more information)

How to request modules at SELCS

Undergraduate modules:

codes: ELCS*
  • Year 2 (Level 5) ELCS modules are normally available.
  • Students wishing to request ELCS modules should do so by selecting them on Portico as soon as they are able to.
  • There is no need to visit SELCS in person as registration is only via Portico.
  • If you need more information, please e-mail the SELCS Undergraduate Office: selcs.undergraduate@ucl.ac.uk
Some modules are subject to prerequisites, such as language proficiency. Before selecting modules on Portico, students should email selcs.undergraduate@ucl.ac.uk to check availability.
codes: LITC*, LCUL*
LITC* and LCUL* modules are not available to students from outside of SELCS.

Postgraduate modules:

Graduate (MA) modules (Level 7)
To find out which postgraduate modules are available to non-SELCS postgraduate students (including Graduate Affiliates), please e-mail selcs.postgraduate@ucl.ac.uk.

Auditing Modules

Due to limited space in classes, it is not possible to attend modules that you are not enrolled on.

Module Approval

We aim to confirm whether you have secured a place on requested modules by the end of induction week (first week of term). We recommend that you have reserve options in place in case it is not possible for us to allocate you to requested SELCS modules. Some SELCS modules are oversubscribed.

Changing Modules

If you need to request changes or you are no longer taking one of our modules once teaching has started, please contact the relevant SELCS administrative team, as listed above. To make changes on Portico, please contact your main home department at UCL.
