Module enrolment timeline

Semester 1 and full year students: we will let you know from June onwards whether your module choices have been accepted. In the summer we will contact you with a module enrolment report, which lists the modules you have been enrolled in or rejected from and those which are still pending a decision.

Semester 2 students who have applied after mid-May: you will receive your module enrolment report about a month after your acceptance to the University.

Please see our guide to module enrolment for further information. 

Changing your modules

You can wait until you arrive in Leeds to add or drop modules, but we strongly recommend that you do this as early as possible to avoid disappointment, particularly if you are interested in taking high-demand modules. You are generally able to make changes to your modules until the second week of teaching.

A total of 60 credits per semester is a full workload. If you are enrolled in more or less than 60 credits you will need to add new modules (using the module catalogue) or drop some to bring your credit total to 60.

To add, drop, or change a module, email the study abroad coordinator in the relevant school.

Your email should include:

  • your full name
  • your Leeds Student ID Number (this can be found in your acceptance email)
  • the module code (eg HIST 1040) and title
  • an explanation of whether you want to add, drop or change a module. If you want to change a module to a different module taught within the same teaching school also include the new module code and title.

Your parent school

You will be allocated a parent school which will be responsible for the administration for your studies at the University of Leeds.

If you are an Erasmus+ student you will be allocated a parent school dependent on which school your home university has its Erasmus+ agreement with. It won’t be possible to change parent school whilst you are studying at Leeds.

All other students will be allocated the most appropriate parent school for you based on your application programme of study. If you change your modules considerably then it is sensible to change your parent school to the one in which you are taking the majority of your modules. The Study Abroad Office can do this for you before or when you arrive.
