How do I select my modules?
Log into RISIS to start selecting your modules.
Your specific questions may be answered here.
Where can I see what modules are offered?
You can find the list of optional modules available for your programme via RISIS
- Log into RISIS
- Select 'Information' from the top menu bar
- Select 'Programme and Modules'
- Click on 'Your module selection’
- This is your opportunity to discover the optional module choices available on your programme prior to you making your selections when Module Selection goes live.
How many credits do I need?
As a full-time undergraduate student, you must have a total of 120 credits per part.
How many credits is each module worth?
The majority of modules are worth 10 or 20 credits, although projects or dissertations may have a higher credit value. Each credit equates approximately to 10 hours of work (including all contact hours such as lectures or classes, as well as further reading and any assessments).
When choosing your modules, please make sure that you register for the right number of credits and optional modules each academic year. This means checking that you have the right number of credits for your programme (this information is available when you make your selections online), as well as the compulsory modules for your programme and any required pre-requisites or co-requisites for the modules you are taking.
Can I change my modules after I have selected them?
Changes to requests should be made as soon as possible, or until the Friday of week 3 in the Autumn term (for modules taught in the Autumn and Autumn/Spring term) and until the Friday of week 2 at 12:30 (for modules taught in the Spring term).
For more information on changing your modules, please see FAQs.
Please note that you do not have an automatic right to change your optional modules. Consideration will be given as to whether you have the necessary pre- and co-requisites, whether there are places available on the module and whether the deadline for changing optional modules has passed.
