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.
However we do have an extensive programme of events which are open to all. More information can be found at the bottom of this web page.
