Module enrolment

Information on the module enrolment period is available on our website. If your question isn’t answered there, please search the below FAQs.


No action is necessary as we will automatically enrol you on all your modules.




The form checks to ensure you are complying with certain rules so please check the instructions at the bottom of the form as to what the problem is. It might be that your credits do not total 120; or that your credits are not equally split between semesters; or you have not selected the correct number of credits from a list.

Please remember:

  • You will only be able to submit the form if you have made a valid selection.  For most full time undergraduates that means you must select a total of 120 credits, for full time postgraduates that means that you must select a total of 180 credits.
  • You will also need to ensure that the credit split between the semesters is balanced.  Most students take 60 credits in each semester and you won’t be able to submit the form with fewer than 50 or more than 70 credits in a single semester.
  • You also must ensure that your choices meet the requirements for restricted optional modules (for example with the minimum number of credits you must take from each group of modules).

If you believe that you have completed the form correctly but are still unable to submit it or if you experience technical difficulties, please let us know by filling in this form instead and we will input your module choices on your behalf. 


First of all, please check that you have entered your University username (e.g ttxaaf) and password correctly.

If you believe that you have done this correctly but still can't access MyNottingham, then please let us know your module choices by completing this form and we will enter them on your behalf. 


A module which is described as either compulsory or core is a module which must be taken by all the students on that programme of study.

Your compulsory modules will be selected for you on the online form and you will not be able to amend these.


A restricted optional choice is when there is some choice in the modules but this is from a limited, prescribed list of modules. 

This could be an ‘alternative’ list (e.g. choose one 20 credit module from list A or from list B) or a ‘restricted’ list (e.g. select two 10 credit modules from this list).



Some students will be able to select modules which are free choice; this means you are able to select any module from the catalogue provided you meet any prerequisites. 

This module selection must still be agreed by both the offering School and the home School or Department to ensure it is appropriate for you and your programme of study.


You will make your choices using the MyNottingham desktop application (which is a core part of our student record system).  We’ve designed the online form to be intuitive and easy to use but we strongly suggest you watch this short video which explains what you will need to do.

We recommend using a laptop or desktop computer running Internet Explorer.  If you do not have this browser on your personal device then it is available on all University PCs.

We recommend that you don’t use a smart phone or tablet device to complete the form as some components may not display correctly.


The process is the same for language centre modules as it is for modules from any other School. However, if you have not studied a Language Centre module previously, before your module selection is approved you are likely to be invited to a language assessment in September to ensure you are on the right level.


Programmes are made up of modules.  Each module is a self-contained, formally-structured unit of study, with a coherent and explicit set of learning outcomes and assessment criteria. 

Each module has a credit value and typically undergraduate students study modules with a combined total of 120 credits per academic year.  Postgraduate students study modules up to a total of 180 credits.


The best source of information and guidance is your home School or Department.  Most Schools produce specific guidance for students on module choice.  The School’s community page in Moodle is another excellent source of information. 

You can find guidance about the modules you can choose as part of your programme and details of modules in the curriculum catalogue available at https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/go/curriculumcatalogue.  Please ensure you select the United Kingdom as your “Campus” and 2020 as the “Term” before entering any additional search criteria. It's advisable to open the curriculum catalogue in a separate browser to the one you're using to view MyNottingham and the online module enrolment system.
