Change of Course or Programme Transfer

Students can now swap courses through Student Self Service during the first two weeks of a semester.  The courses being swapped must be of the same credit value and you must have met any pre-requisites for the course to be added.

If you need to change a course after that date, or if you need to add or delete a course, please complete the change of course form, have it signed off by either your Year Co-ordinator (undergraduate students) or your Programme Director (postgraduate students), who will forward it for processing.  The deadlines for course changes are:

Semester 1 courses: Friday 24 September 2021

Semester 2 courses: Friday 21 January 2022

Please ensure you put the correct course code on the form as that is what is used to change your enrolment, not the course name.

If you are thinking about transferring to another programme of study, please discuss this with your Personal Tutor or Programme Director and then complete the Programme Transfer Application Form.
