Modules that are not available via eNROL
eNROL displays the valid options for your course. If you wish to choose a module that is not available within the structure of your course,
then you would have to seek approval by requesting a special syllabus.
Requesting a special syllabus
If there is a module that you would like to study that isn’t available as an option on your course, then you can ask for a change to your syllabus to be made by submitting a special syllabus request.
Special syllabus requests are not automatically available and require approval. It is a good idea to talk to your Department or School responsible for your course, as well as the Department that teach the module if it is an outside option.
Requests to study different modules are normally used to replace one or two of your optional module with something different.
Some modules have “pre-requisite” or “co-requisite” requirements, which means that you have to have studied other modules before, or at the same time, as the module you are requesting.
Requests to study a lot of outside options, to change a core or compulsory module of your course, or to study a module at a different level of study, are unlikely to be approved.
You should submit your request early in order to allow time for it to be considered and approved before term starts. When filling in the online form, you should list all the modules you want to study next year. You should also still complete your normal module enrolment to confirm the modules you would like to study if your special syllabus request is not approved.
