Module Selection Process

You will be asked to select your modules prior to arrival and we will inform you via email as to whether you have been successful in your choices. If any of your chosen modules are unavailable we will provide you with a list of available modules for selection.

Once you receive confirmation of your modules from the History Department you will be asked to register through the University Online Registration system (e-mr). Please ensure that this process is completed by the deadlines provided. You must only register for modules that have been approved by the Department.

When you register for your modules you must register for the relevant module code for the length of your time at Warwick (i.e. Term 1 only, Terms 1 & 2, Terms 1, 2 &3, or Term 2 only). This will ensure that you are able to submit the correct assessments (see below).

If you are interested in studying a module from outside of History you must follow the application process for the relevant department. As with History modules, once you have had your selection agreed you must register for the other modules as detailed above.

Tabula

Tabula is the web application used by the History Department to manage coursework assignments, allocate you to seminar groups, monitor attendance and provide feedback to you.

You can use Tabula to:

  • View your student profile and Personal Tutor details
  • See which seminars groups you are assigned to
  • View assignments, deadlines, submit work and apply for extensions
  • View your weekly timetable
  • View assignment feedback
  • See your attendance details and monitoring points.

As soon as you have completed the module registration process you will be able to view your timetable in Tabula. Where relevant, the department will then allocate you to a seminar group. You must attend the seminar group to which you are allocated. Any requests to change must be made via the History Office and will only be considered where a timetable clash occurs.
