Module Allocation and Registration

Visiting students based in History will have had their history module allocations confirmed via email over the summer. If you wish to change your modules, please email stating your preferred choices (and including reserve choices in case your chosen module(s) are full) If you wish to change your modules to a higher level than those you have been allocated, please contact Pierre Purseigle for prior approval.

Visiting students based in departments other than history should email historyoffice at warwick dot ac dot uk stating their module preferences and reserve options in case preferred modules are full. Please note that this can only be done after arrival at Warwick, and that choices may take several days to confirm.

Once you have had confirmation that you can take a module, please follow the instructions in the emails you have received regarding module registration. Please take care to register for the correct assessment method relating to the length of time you will be at Warwick.
