Beta version of UCL’s first Module Catalogue goes live 31 May

30 May 2019

Window for feedback closes 28 June

From 31 May staff and students will be able to preview the new online UCL Module Catalogue beta site and give feedback through an online survey.

The Module Catalogue holds data from Portico that was entered by departments during the Academic Review process. It has been developed in response to demand from across the UCL community and includes an intuitive module search, descriptions of module content and key information about how and when each module is taught and assessed.

Students and staff are invited to provide feedback via an online survey that can be accessed from the catalogue. The survey will remain open until 28 June.

Future publication in spring

For this first year only, departments will have a two week window from 8 - 19 July to make final changes to their module descriptions via a modified Module Maintenance task in Portico.

In future years, the catalogue will be published in Term Two, so that continuing students can make indicative module selections in March. To make this possible, the Module Catalogue will be updated after the Academic Review process is complete so it is important the information provided is accurate at the time of entry. This annual snapshot of all UCL modules will be a single source of truth for module data.

Making information consistent for students

To make sure students get consistent module information, web or Moodle pages with module content managed by departments will need to be updated to either link to or include information from the catalogue. This may not be achievable for the forthcoming academic session but departments are asked to plan for these changes to be in place in time for the launch of the 2020/21 Module Catalogue in March 2020. 

Further information about module registration dates for the future is available on the Academic Services website.
