Course units

Your degree programme consists of several course units. Some of these will be compulsory and others will be option units that you can choose from in order to tailor your degree.

Here are some key things to remember when choosing units:

  • It is your responsibility to choose courses that are within your programme structure and that you have the pre-requisite for. The Curriculum and Programmes Team may check that students have chosen correctly and that you have enrolled for 120 credits for the year. If it is discovered you are taking the wrong courses you will be removed from those and expected to take an alternative course. This may not happen until week 3 of teaching meaning you will have missed a significant amount of content on another course which you will need to take.
  • Remember to check that your choices do not cause a timetable clash. If this happens you will be expected to choose an alternative course.
  • Remember that some course units have quotas and you will need to enrol onto these courses as soon as you can to secure a place.
  • After the first two weeks of semester 1, the student system will close for changes to semester one and full-year course units.
  • After the first two weeks of semester 2, the student system will close for changes to all course units.
  • You will not be permitted to drop a course which you took in the first semester in favour of a second-semester course, nor will you be permitted to opt-out of a full-year course at the end of semester one.


Changing full year and Semester 1 course units: Friday, 4 October 2024.

Changing Semester 2 course units: Friday, 7 February 2025.

These deadlines must be strictly adhered to and no changes will be allowed after this date.

  • Resit Students - if your results indicate that you have first sits or resits in the August 2024 reassessment period you will still be able to select courses but you will not have formally progressed to the next level of the programme until you pass the assessment. The resit boards will meet in early September. If you pass all your resits you will be contacted accordingly.
  • Most AMBS optional courses do not have a limit on numbers who can enrol, resit students should still be able to choose a wide range of courses in September. Unfortunately, it may not be possible for you to take a course that has a quota and you should therefore consider a wide range of options.
  • If you need help enrolling onto your course choices in Campus Solutions, please email quoting your student ID number with a description of the problem.
