Early Module Registration for 2020-2021

3 October 2019

For 2020/2021, continuing students will be asked to select their modules between 12 March 2020 to 3 April 2020

The information in this article has been superseded. Please read the article Delay to Early Module Registration Roll-Out to learn more about the revised approach and new timelines.

Why are we doing this?

  • To enable better planning for downstream processes such as room bookings 
  • To increase the number of students being able to take as many of their desired modules as possible
  • To enable students to select when staff are around to support them
  • To eliminate the need for ad-hoc manual collection of earlier selections by departments 
  • To increase the number of student module selections which are confirmed prior to the start of the academic session

What will I need to do?

  • Ensure your programme diets and modules for continuing students are confirmed by the end of February 2020 (more information about this will be provided soon) 
  • Ensure that your continuing students are aware of the new timeline
  • Familiarise yourself with the Module Registration - Dates for the Future

Enhancements and Improvements:

To facilitate early module registration, we will be introducing:

  • Improved reporting on selections and roomings
  • The ability for departments to close a module to registrations when full
  • An ‘Amendment’ window for students to request an amendment to an earlier selection when results are known  
  • Improved module selection approval processes on Portico to take into account earlier selections and requests for amendments to earlier selections

Other Changes: 

  • Permit students to request an exemption from requisite rules 
  • Improve the affiliate module registration experience

More information about the above will be made available to you over the coming months.
