Additional information - intercollegiate module registration

Choosing a module from other institutions in the University of London (UCL or Birkbeck)

Full guidance about requesting to take an intercollegiate module as part of your programme can be found in the Guidance document above. *You must follow the process outlined in this document: you cannot submit a registration form directly to UCL or Birkbeck.*

The Department of Philosophy at King's has a reciprocal agreement with UCL and Birkbeck to permit you to take philosophy modules at those institutions, where they offer modules for which an equivalent module is not available at King's.

If you are interested in taking a philosophy module from either of the above institutions you should first make contact with the Department Education Lead for Philosophy at King's before submitting your choices.

Please note that requests to take modules from outside of King's will only be granted in cases where the module you request does *not* have a direct topical counterpart at King's.

University College London

Please refer to the University College London website (opens in popup window) for module availability. Under each module listing it says '2017/18: Yes' if it will be running next academic year, and '2017/18: No' if it won't. 

UCL Philosophy undergraduate modules are coded PHIL1*** for year 1 students, PHIL2*** for year 2 students, and PHIL3*** for year 3 students.

Please note that UCL module registration does not take place until the summer months and places on modules will not be confirmed until late summer. UCL Philosophy cannot guarantee you a place on your chosen module if it is oversubscribed. You will therefore remain registered on your reserve module at King's until the intercollegiate registration is confirmed.

Birkbeck College, University of London

Please refer to the Birkbeck website (opens in popup window) for module availability. 

Provisional list of 2017-18 modules - updated 14 March 2017

Please note that teaching at Birkbeck can take place in the evening. The Birkbeck Philosophy website advises that, with a small number of exceptions, any module scheduled before 18.00 in 2016-17 will be scheduled after 18.00 if it runs in 2017-18, and vice versa.

What if I change my mind later?

You will be able to amend your module choices for Semester 1/ Semester 2/ Full Year modules from when the timetable is published (usually August) up until the end of the second week of teaching of Semester 1. 

In addition, you will be able to amend your module choices for Semester 2 modules from the last week of the first term up until the end of the first week of teaching of Semester 2.

*Changes cannot be made to your module choices after these dates.*

The exact deadlines for the coming academic year will be published on the Request to Change modules webpage once confirmed.

Nevertheless, please note that module changes at the start of the year are not encouraged. We cannot guarantee that it will be possible for you to take any module you apply for later than Monday 3 April. You are encouraged to take your choices seriously!
