Frequently Asked Questions
Who can take these modules?
Students registered at the University of Nottingham:
Students need to be registered on a research track masters (i.e. the MSSR or similar) or a PhD programme in a School which hosts a DTP pathway. The exception is the 'Other Specialist Modules' as labelled in the module guide: as these modules come from taught masters programmes. Students wishing to take these modules should check with the offering School in the first instance.
Students not registered at the University of Nottingham:
Students registered elsewhere must be an ESRC-funded student with the Midlands Graduate School.
When will the timetable be available?
The timetable is usually available to view at the end of the summer.
If you'd like to check the timetable before you enrol on a module, there is a link to view the module timetables on the online module enrolment form. Once you are registered on a module you will be able to view timings via your individual timetables.
