You apply for modules after you have submitted your initial application and been accepted to study at the University of Leeds.
Find out more about how you will select your modules, receive your Module Enrolment Report and how to make changes to your module choices.
From May, we will contact all study abroad and exchange students who have been accepted to the programme for a September start by email with guidance on how to submit module choices to the University of Leeds.
We will then share these choices with the academic schools for approval. You will hear the outcome by email, approximately six to eight weeks after submitting your choices.
We will send any study abroad or exchange students accepted to the programme after 1 May, including those applying for January start, guidance on how to submit module choices with their acceptance letter.
We will contact pre-sessional English language students who start their language course before September about the ‘study abroad’ part of their programme from early May.
Module Enrolment Report
Your Module Enrolment Report is a PDF summary of the modules you have been enrolled on or rejected from and those which are still pending a decision.
We will automatically email your Module Enrolment Report to September and January starters approximately six to eight weeks after you receive your official acceptance to the University. You will only receive one Module Enrolment Report.
If you make changes to your module enrolment after receiving your Module Enrolment Report, you will be able to view the modules you are enrolled in through the student portal after you have registered with the University.
Checking your module enrolment
Online registration will open six weeks before the start of teaching and you will gain access to Minerva, the Student portal. From Minerva, you have the option to view your modules.
When viewing your Module Enrolment Report, there are three codes which relate to three possible outcomes:
- Temporarily Enrolled (EH): this means that the teaching school is still reviewing your application for this module and a final decision has not yet been made. There are some cases where it is not possible to make a decision until closer to the start of teaching. If you or your home university need a decision urgently, contact the teaching school or department directly stating the date that you need a decision by.
- Registered (RE or RW): this means that the teaching school or department has accepted you onto this module. You have been fully enrolled in it and you are guaranteed a place in the class. You do not need to do anything further to take this module.
- Drop-Deleted (DD): unfortunately, the teaching school or department has not accepted you onto this module and you have not been enrolled in it. You may have received a comment on your Module Enrolment Report to explain the reason why you have not been accepted onto this module, but if not then you can contact the teaching school for clarification.
If a module you applied for is not appearing on your Module Enrolment Report, then it is likely that this module was full at the time you applied, has been discontinued or the teaching school has not approved your choice. If you would like clarification on this, please contact the Study Abroad Coordinator in the relevant teaching school.
Some schools operate waiting lists so we recommend that you contact the Study Abroad Coordinator in the relevant teaching school to ask if you can be added to the waiting list.
Changing your modules
You will be able to make changes to your modules after you have received your Module Enrolment Report. We strongly recommend that you finalise your modules as soon as possible after you receive your Module Enrolment Report, particularly if you are interested in taking modules in high-demand areas. You are generally able to make changes to your modules up until the end of the second week of teaching.
A total of 50–60 credits per semester is a full workload. If you are enrolled in less than 50 credits, you will need to find new modules to add using the module catalogue, or if you enrolled in more than 60 credits you will need to drop some to bring your credit total to 60.
To add, drop, or change a module, please contact 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, please 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 of your studies at the University of Leeds. If you have applied to Leeds via a subject-specific agreement, you will be allocated a parent school based on the subject area your home university has its exchange agreement with. It will not be possible to change your parent school whilst you are studying at Leeds.
If you have not applied to Leeds as part of a subject-specific agreement, you will be allocated the most appropriate parent school based on your current programme of study at your home university.
If you change your modules considerably then it may be sensible to change your parent school to the one in which you are taking the majority of your modules. If you believe your parent school should be changed, please contact the Study Abroad Coordinator in your parent school.
