Module Registration

Access to the eVision Module Registration (eMR) system is now closed to students. You may still view your module/exam registrations via the eVision module registration screen but may not now make any further changes.

If there are any problems or issues relating to your module/exam registrations you must now bring these to the attention of the appropriate staff member(s) in your academic department as soon as possible.

The module registration process timetable allows a further period in weeks 1 - 3 of the Spring Term for students to make further amendments to their modules and/or assessment methods for the academic year 2018/19. Module registration will be opened for amendments by students at this time where permitted by their academic departments.
