Module preferences

Please discuss with your Study Abroad Academic Adviser which modules you would like to study whilst you are at your destination campus. For more information about courses and programmes offered by UNNC/UNM please refer to ‘Search for Courses’ on the module catalogue.   You will be asked to get your modules signed-off after your application has been accepted.

Undergraduate modules (courses) are graded at Year 1, 2, 3 in accordance with the University of Nottingham UK structure.

  • Year 1: Qualifying Year: Level 1 modules
  • Year 2: Part I: Level 2 modules
  • Year 3: Part II: Level 3 modules

  • The majority of undergraduate exchange students will choose Level 2 modules.
  • Please ensure that you select modules of a suitable level. If there is a particular module that you are required to take in order for you to graduate, please ensure these modules are indicated as 'compulsory' on your application. If this module has pre-requisites, students should provide evidence that they meet these pre-requisites. However, please note that a place on a specific module cannot be guaranteed prior to arrival.
  • The normal credit load for one semester is 60 Nottingham credits. The normal credit load for a full academic year is 120 credits. All students must take a minimum of 60 credits per semester. 
  • Exchange students should have modules approved by their home school/department prior to arrival at their destination campus and to be flexible in their selection in case their first choices are not available.
  • Please note that the module preferences entered on this form do not constitute pre-registration. There is no guarantee that you will be able to take the modules based on your preferences due to potential timetable clash. 
  • A timetable clash is likely to occur when you choose modules across different schools and levels, for example, a level 2 Business school exchange student chooses a level 3 International Communications module. On your application, you should indicate whether or not a module is compulsory. If yes, your host campus will prioritise your compulsory module while avoiding a timetable clash.
  • Module registration takes place on your arrival at your host campus. Within the first two academic teaching weeks, you will be allowed to make further changes of your module choices upon the approval of your home school or department.
  • For language modules please specify the language level (e.g. Spanish 2a). Students who choose a Mandarin module at UNNC will be asked to do an online placement test before arrival in order to place you at a suitable level of language module. For details, please contact the UNNC Language Center.

Supporting documents

Information will be provided to you in March 2023, both by email and on either the China or Malaysia Campus exchange Moodle module which you will be given access to, with further information about the supporting documents that you need to submit. Students who have been accepted to study onto Inter-campus exchange by their school/department will be sent details of this meeting by email. You will then need to submit your supporting documents directly to your host campus.
