3.3 Module Registration

As a student it is your responsibility to ensure that you are registered for the correct modules and assessment methods via the systems required for each module and that you do this at the correct specified times.

You should be aware that the module registration system may allow you to register for module combinations that may not comply with course regulations. Therefore it is important that you check your module choices against the course regulations: see Section 2 of the handbook.

You should note that some departments run separate module registration systems and / or preregistration. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have registered for modules using both systems if required.

Modules that are not listed in the option lists of your year require departmental approval via an unusual option form.


The Department of Statistics uses the University Online Module Registration System (eMR) which is accessed via Students will find their core modules are already entered, only requiring the addition of listed and optional modules.

Module registrations on eMR can only be amended (added and removed) during the following periods:

  • Two weeks prior to start of term 1
  • Weeks 1-3 of term 1
  • Weeks 1-3 of term 2

All modules that you wish to take must be registered by the end of week 3 of term 2, you cannot add modules after this time. You may only remove a module if it is permitted under the deregistration rules relating to coursework and groupwork.

Warwick Business School has a separate module registration system in addition (my.WBS). Please note that if you register on eMR but not on my.wbs (or vice versa), for an IB module you will not be considered to have registered for the module.

The WBS deadline for module registration is week 3, Term 1 for Autumn Term or full year modules, and week 2, Term 2 for Spring Term modules.

You must adhere to the deadline for registering for modules, otherwise we will not be able to use marks awarded for that module.

The initial information you supply to eMR does not involve you making a permanent commitment to take the selected modules, nor stop you from following other modules.

However, you must ensure that all details held on eMR are correct at the time of the final deadline for registration as these details constitute your final examination timetable.

Students are strongly advised not to leave finalizing the registration until the last day.


It is a university rule that if assessed work or class tests which contribute more than 10% towards the final mark for a module are submitted by the student for credit then it is no longer possible to deregister from the module even if this takes place before the general deadline for deregistration. This rule is strictly adhered to for ST modules however some Departments waive this rule. If you want to deregister from a non-ST module after completing more than 10% of the assessed work you are advised to discuss with the support office of the Department delivering the module.

Additionally it is not permitted to deregister from a module with a substantial groupwork component after the end of week 3 of the module. Modules that are known to have a substantial groupwork component include IB349/IB408 Operational Research in Strategic Planning (with advanced topics), IB3J2 Decision Making under Uncertainty, IB352 Applied Optimisation and ST344 Professional Practice of Data Analysis. However it should be noted that any other modules with a substantial coursework component will also have restricted deregistration.

Students who were registered for an overload by the end of the module registration deadline can deregister modules during the following additional periods;

  • Week 10 of term 2
  • Week 1 of term 3 (via Support Office)

You must adhere to the deadline for deregistering; modules that you are registered for after this deadline cannot be removed and will appear on your transcript.


Some departments run preregistration for modules available to continuing students during the previous academic year. Modules with preregistration usually have a maximum possible number of students and will not offer places after the cap is reached. Early preregistration may required to secure a place on a module.

All module choices that do not appear in course regulation lists must have an unusual option form submitted in addition to preregistration.

Known information about Departments / modules with preregistration is shown below however information about preregistration is usually sent out by email. You should check your emails regularly and follow instructions to ensure that you preregister for any popular modules that you may be interested in.


Applies to: All non-core IB modules (including listed modules)

Location of preregistration: 

Timing: Early May

Additional notes: There is a maximum CATS of IB modules that students from Statistics can preregister for. See course notes on regulations for each year for more details. The initial preregistration is NOT first come, first served and all applications during preregistration will be considered at the same time. Once students are confirmed on modules the application system will reopen (likely to be late July / early August) and students can join any modules that have places remaining.


Applies to: ST340 Programming for Data Science and ST344 Professional Practice of Data Analysis

Location of preregistration: Module Information pages

Timing: Term 3 of previous academic year - 2 weeks prior to start of term 1.

Additional notes: Completion of form does not guarantee a place although the time that the form is submitted may be a factor. Criteria for allocation of places on modules are listed on the module information pages.


Applies to: All non-core economics modules

Location of preregistration:

Timing: Term 3 of previous academic year onwards.

Additional Information: Completion of form does not guarantee a place. A separate module choice "survey" takes place in term 3, which is used to plan timetabling and room sizes.
