Choosing your modules (new & returning PGT students)
Guidance & module descriptions
When choosing your modules, please consult the guidelines attached below, which detail the programme regulations and the rules/guidelines for selecting modules outside the Department, if you wish to do so.
You are encouraged to consult with your programme director before submitting your choices.
The above guidance document contains important information on:
- Timetable and key dates
- Making your Module Selections online
- Checking your Programme Requirements
- Modules on offer in 2019-20
- Choosing a module from another department at King’s
- Choosing a Modern Language Centre module
- Choosing an intercollegiate modules at UCL or Birkbeck
Additional advice for Part Time Students
When you first arrive, you will be asked to submit module choices for your first year only. We will contact you again at the beginning of your second year to request your final year modules.
If you are a returning Part Time student, you must select new modules (i.e. you must not select any modules which you have already studied at King's in the past).
Part Time students must select modules amounting to a minimum of 40 credits and a maximum of 80 credits in each year, you must take 120 credits worth of taught modules across your two-year programme. The remaining 60 credits will come from your dissertation, which will be completed over the summer in your final year.
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 early October (exact date TBC).
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.*
Further details and 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 after the module selection process has ended in early September (exact date TBC). You are encouraged to take your choices very seriously!
Additional information - intercollegiate module registration
Students are expected to take all their tuition at King's College London and can only apply for intercollegiate modules in exceptional circumstances.
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 PGT Programmes Director 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 exceptional circumstances.
University College London
Please refer to the University College London website (opens in popup window) for module availability.
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.
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 2018-19 will be scheduled after 18.00 if it runs in 2019-20, and vice versa.
