It is the responsibility of the parent school to ensure that students enrol for their modules online and that all module and programme data is up to date and accurate.
Student module enrolment
Students enrol for the modules that will make up their programme of study online on the module enrolment system accessed through Minerva: The Portal and VLE. While it's open, students can use the system whenever they wish and revise their choices where necessary. The web form incorporates direct links to module and personal timetables, the module and programme catalogues and a filtration system for the enrolment on foreign language modules.
If students need guidance at any stage of their enrolment, they are encouraged to contact their parent school or relevant teaching schools. Face-to-face advice can be obtained at the Discovery Themes fair, which will be taking place on Thursday 09 May 2019 (11am-2pm) in Parkinson Court, within the Parkinson Building. A second fair will be held in September for new and returning undergraduate students.
If a student wants to change their choice of module after the module enrolment system has closed, they must complete a Change of Module (Course) form and return it to their parent school no later than 25 October 2019 for semester one modules and 21 February 2020 for semester two modules. Individual schools may have earlier deadlines.
Updating module and programme information
Before the online system is opened to students, it is important that the relevant data in both Banner and Module and Programme Catalogues (MCAT and PCAT) is up to date, accurate and identical.
The second stage of the online enrolment process is to inform students how and when to access the online enrolment system. There are also certain data checks that schools can make to ensure that the correct compulsory module data is on a student's record before the system is accessible to the student.
Monitoring and approving student choices
The third stage of the enrolment process is monitoring that students have enrolled online and approving their module choices. It is the parent school's responsibility to check their students complete their module enrolment and that they comply with the rules for their programme of study.
Study abroad and exchange students
Study abroad and exchange students cannot use the module enrolment system to apply for modules or make changes to their programme of study. Their module enrolment is managed by the Study Abroad Office and Study Abroad coordinators within each academic school or department.
More detailed information about every aspect of module enrolment can be found in the Module Enrolment guide for staff together with further guidance to help schools prepare for the module enrolment exercise.
