Module choice and enrolment

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


If you are studying abroad for the entirety of the 2021/22 academic year then you do not need to complete the form.  

However if you are uncertain about your travel arrangements, due to COVID19 restrictions, and are unsure if your study abroad will take place, then you can make a selection of modules.  But please use the Add/Edit box at the bottom of the form to indicate that your choices are a precaution, as you are planning to be studying abroad during 21/22.


MyNottingham calls modules “courses”. Wherever you see the word course in MyNottingham it means module in the University’s terminology.


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.

There is further information and guidance on the Digital and Technical Services webpage(s).


If all your modules are compulsory, you don’t need to do anything. 

You will be able to log into the online module enrolment form, accessed from the Module Enrolment page.  Your compulsory modules will already be attached to it, but you will not be able to amend them.


We’ve designed the online form to be intuitive and easy to use but we strongly suggest you watch the video on the Module enrolment webpage which explains what you will need to do.

You will be required to select the relevant number of credits from the modules detailed in the restricted list(s) appropriate for your programme of study; these lists will typically include the modules available to you from your home school or partner schools (for joint honours/multidisciplinary programmes).

If your programme of study allows you to select “free” choice modules from other Schools (subsidiary modules), you will have the opportunity to do so.

The system has been performance tested to ensure that it can cope with high volumes of users and no critical issues have been identified.  However, we expect that response times may be slower at peak times and we would ask you to be patient whilst the pages load and your form is submitted. 



We ask you to think carefully about your choices before submitting the form, as the form can only be submitted once during each period it is open.

However, you will have the chance to change your Semester 2 modules in the change of mind period in January.



Submitting the form does not guarantee you a place on the modules. In the weeks after the Module Enrolment window has closed we will check that the modules meet your course regulations and that there are sufficient spaces available.

There are a number of reasons why they may not be approved for instance:

  • There may be an obvious timetabling clash that we are made aware of.  
  • You may not be eligible to take the module.  Some modules have pre-requisites that you must meet before you can take them.  We will review your choices to make sure they comply with the programme and module regulations.

 We will contact you on your University e-mail address before the end of term if there are any queries or issues with your selection.



Some modules have a cap on the maximum number of students who may be enrolled on the module.  Caps are set by the offering School and are used for a variety of reasons.  

Please note your space on a module is provisionally allocated when you submit the form.  This is then checked before allocation is complete, places are allocated on a first come first served basis.

Please ask our team on Live Chat via the Module Enrolment webpage (open between 10-4pm throughout the module enrolment window by clicking the live chat icon on the Module Enrolment page) if you have a query about a cap they can see on the form. 


Online module enrolment will take place on the following dates:

From 12 noon on Wednesday 22 September to 5 pm on Tuesday 28 September 2021 for NEW students

and from:

12 noon on Thursday 30 September to 5 pm on Wednesday 13 October.

If you do not provide your module choices within this window it may mean that your individual timetable will not be available to you and you will not be added on to the module on Moodle, this can disrupt your start of term. 

Therefore we strongly advise you to select/review your choices within this enrolment period.
