Request to change modules
If you change your mind about which modules you want to take, you are able to apply to change your modules by completing an online Module Change Request form (below).
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.
- Check the timetable to make sure that your requested change does not cause clashes with your existing choices.
- Check the programme requirements for your programme.
Please note also that module changes can only be made where there is sufficient space in the module you wish to join.
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 be approved as all changes are dependent on the timetable and space being available on the module. You will be notified of the outcome of your application by email to your @kcl.ac.uk email address.
Complete the form below, including all module codes (which can be found in the module list on the department website).
You must enter your @kcl.ac.uk email address to use this form.
Module change request deadlines and form
Requests to change full-year and semesters 1 and 2 modules may be submitted between Monday 20 August at 9am and Friday 5 October 2018.
Further requests to change semester 2 modules only may be submitted from Monday 3 December 2018 to Friday 18 January 2019. Any module change requests submitted during the Christmas College closure period will be responded to once Department Offices have re-opened. Any semester 2 change requests submitted between 6 October and 2 December will not be accepted.
Any form sent before the opening date or after the closing date will be considered void
Please note that requests for Semester 2 module changes will be considered on a 'first-come first-served' basis. Waiting lists from the October module change window will NOT be carried forward.
External Module Request
Requests to take external modules during the module selection period (8th March 2019 - 2nd April 2019) must be submitted through the module change request form. This deadline is 16:00 BST on 2 April 2019. Please note that requests for places on external modules cannot be guaranteed, and are subject to approval.
Request to change seminar group
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 5 October 2018 at 17.00 for Semester 1 modules and 18 January 2019 at 17.00 for Semester 2 modules.
PLEASE NOTE: no seminar change requests for Semester 2 modules will be considered between 6 October - 2 December 2018.
