Options depend upon your course year. In Psychology, you should usually take the appropriate year modules and you must have agreement from the module convener.

Assessment types are standard – Warwick Students should not use VA or AO types (VA is only for Incoming Study Abroad students. AO is audit only and does not attach credit)

Remember

  • Module registration open from 1 week before term until week 3 of term
  • You can attend modules in the first weeks of term on a ‘try out’ basis to help you make up your mind
  • Much better than trying to catch up after having missed several weeks because you have changed your mind!
  • Module convenors are here to help – do ask questions!
