Your London Met course consists of a number of modules, some of which are core to your course and some which are optional. CORE modules are compulsory to ALL students in your course, and most first year undergraduate courses consist entirely of core modules.
As you progress through your course, you may be able to specialise into areas that most interest you by choosing OPTION modules.
How to select your modules for 2019/20
Students who progress to the next year of study for 2018/19 will be invited to confirm their modules for the upcoming academic year from 8 July.
You will be sent an email inviting you to confirm your modules online via Evision. This email will advise you of your deadline for confirming your modules.
Core modules will have been allocated for you, you will need to confirm your preferred optional modules.
It is important that you respond promptly to the deadline set in the email for confirming your modules, otherwise you may not get to study the modules of your choice. If you do not select your modules by the deadline, the University will allocate you a default programme.
Request to change your allocated modules should be made via your Student Hub. No changes to modules can be made after week two of teaching.
Students with re-assessments
Some students will have re-assessments during the summer, and will not be able to confirm their modules until their re-assessment results are published. Your re-assessment results will be published 22 August 2019, and your final progression decision will be on 28 August 2019.
If you pass your re-assessments and progress to the next year of study, you will receive an email inviting you to confirm your modules online via Evision.
If you do not progress to the next year of study, and will need to remain at your current level for 2019/20. You will be notified of your 2019/20 modules by your Student Hub after the final results and progression decisions have been published.
Types of modules
Core - these modules are compulsory, you must complete them in order to meet the requirements of your award
Option - designed to provide opportunities for breadth (extension of knowledge or a modern language module) and depth (subject specific option module)
Prerequisite/prior learning requirement - these are modules which must be taken before proceeding to study subsequent module(s).
Open Language Module (OL) – some undergraduate courses allow a language module for which you will need to attend a language evaluation session to be assessed and registered at the appropriate level.
Extension of Knowledge (EoK) module - Extension of Knowledge modules are undergraduate options from subject areas outside your main subject(s). You may choose from an approved list of modules offered within and across Schools.
Work Related Modules – as part of the University’s five star promise you will be able to undertake work experience whilst studying which will count towards your academic qualification. All undergraduate students will do a 15 credit WRL module at either level 5 or level 6 in subsequent years. Please choose your WRL module from the EoK module list (the WRL module will usually have a 'W' letter in the module code).
Please note that not all programmes offer a choice of modules and therefore you might not have the opportunity to alter the modules that are allocated to you.
Undergraduate modules are generally worth 15 or 30 credits. At the end of the academic year once you have achieved enough credits and satisfied the requirements of your course you will be permitted to progress to the next level.
Please refer to the Undergraduate Progression Matrix for rules relating to progression.
As a Full-time student your modules (including core) should add up to between 90 and 120 credits for each academic year, or between 15 and 90 if studying part-time.
Your core (compulsory) modules will automatically be selected on your behalf.
Part time students and full time students starting at higher levels than the first year (direct entry) will be invited to plan their modules, the Student Hub will provide further information once module registration for 2019/20 is available. For part time students, the intended credits registered cannot exceed 90 in an academic year.
Before you select your modules
Before selecting your modules, it is recommended that you review your course structure, research potential modules you are interested in, ensuring you have the appropriate pre-requisites.
Please check you are on the correct course and year. If not, please contact your Student Hub.
Some modules have restricted availability and places are allocated on a first come first served basis.
Once an option module is full you will not be able to select it, and therefore you will have to make another choice.
When selecting your option modules, you need to make sure that they do not clash with your core modules.
