Request to change modules

Changing modules
 
You can apply to change your initial module registrations by completing a module change request form.
 
  • Before making a change request it is your responsibility to check that the change would not result in a timetable clash; that you would have a balance of modules across semesters (where possible) and that you meet any specific programme requirements.
  • You should discuss the proposed change with your personal tutor in the first instance.
  • You can request to change semester 1, semester 2 and full year modules from 27 August to 27 September. You can also request to change semester 2 modules from 2 December to 17 January. Any module change requests submitted during the Christmas College closure period will be responded to once Department Offices have re-opened.

Undergraduate
Please note that the process for changing modules in the Department of Music has changed this year.

  • Amendments to module registrations can only be requested after the timetable has been released.
  • Before making a change request it is your responsibility to check that the change would not result in a timetable clash; that you will have a balance of modules across semesters (where possible) and that you meet any specific programme requirements.
  • After this date, you will be able to apply to change your modules by completing the online Module Change Request Form (found on the right hand side of this page).
  • Although it is not required for you to gain the approval of your personal tutor to change modules, we recommend that you inform your tutor about any module changes that are made.
  • Do not assume that your application will automatically be approved as all changes are dependent on the timetable, class sizes and space being available on the module. You will be notified of the outcome of your application via email which will be sent to your @kcl.ac.uk email address.
  • If you are a combined honours or major/minor student please use the appropriate module change form for the department that you are requesting a module change in.

Changing seminar classes/language groups

You should be available for classes throughout the College’s teaching week (specified in the  College timetabling policy). We will endeavour to ensure that the timetable is released sufficiently in advance of the commencement of teaching to assist students in making appropriate arrangements.

We will facilitate changes in your seminar group allocations when you have a timetable clash between classes on modules which count towards your award, or have accessibility needs (for example disabled access to a seminar room).

In some other exceptional circumstances we will allow you to switch between seminar groups on a module. This is permitted on the following grounds:

  • Responsibilities as a carer or parent
  • Recurring medical appointments
  • Religious observance
  • Commitments to an employer already entered into before seminar groups are published, and which cannot be easily altered (we will ask for evidence of this)

Any moves between seminar groups can only be made where constraints permit it, and it is not guaranteed that you will be able to change.

To change your seminar group, please use the seminar group change request form.

The strict deadline for receipt of seminar change requests is Friday 27 September at 17.00 for semester 1 modules and 17 January 2020 at 17.00 for semester 2 modules.
