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 23th to 29th August for autumn theme courses and 6th to 12th December for spring theme courses. You will be reminded. (Cancellations will be by email to the degree programme Study Coordinator)

There will be a break week in English basic and intermediate studies and English language and literature advanced studies at the end of periods I and III i.e. 15.-21.10 and 25.2.-3.3.

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.
