Theme course enrolment

What are Theme courses? Theme courses are alternative courses in English Language and Literature Advanced Studies.

Autumn and spring theme courses have separate enrolment, see enrolment times above. Students will be selected onto theme courses on the day after the enrolment time ends. After student selection there will be a fixed period when we want you to cancel your enrolment if you have been selected onto more theme courses than you wish to take. This period will be 24th to 31st August for autumn theme courses and 8th to 13th December for spring theme courses. You will be reminded. (Cancellations will be by email to the degree programme Study Coordinator)

Book exams etc.

Information on book exams, essays and other independent study alternatives.

Dropping out of courses

If a student has registered for a course but will not be taking it, he/she must cancel his/her registration by the set date before the course begins so that another student may take the course instead.

If a student does not participate in the course and does not cancel his/her enrolment, or if he/she discontinues the course, he/she will be assigned a fail grade for the course in question.

In the English degree programme students must cancel their registration within a week from the course’s first meeting.
