You can find video presentations about the modules below. In addition to these videos you can review each module in the University Module Catalogue. To search for a module enter the module code missing off the final character (e.g. for IB9MS0 enter IB9MS). The catalogue entry will show the module aims, objectives, and assessment methods. Please note the method of delivery of 'study time' can vary dependent on the term in which a module is offered. All term 3 modules will be run over a 2-week period.

Elective Selection process

The elective selection process will close at 12 noon on Wednesday 28th February 2024 and no further changes will be accepted after that time. Whilst the form is open you can make changes, however any resubmission will overwrite previous submissions.

Students must rank their choices of electives by preference, (rank 1 being your 1st choice ). You are asked to rank your preferences on the form in case we are not able to grant you a place on your preferred option.

If demand exceeds spaces available on a module students will be allocated at random (i.e. not on a first come first served basis) to fill the number of places available.

Please ensure you have fully reviewed the information provided above before making your selection to ensure you have fully understood the process.

Once the selections have been finalised you will be registered to the confirmed elective and will be able to access the module area on my.wbs.
