In each of these cases, the system will prevent you from registering to the clashing module and inform you of the reason.

What is 'Module Capacity'?

A module’s capacity is the total number of students who can be accommodated within the module. Every module has its own fixed capacity determined by factors such as room capacity, staff/resources available to support it, the requirement to keep to a given staff/student ratio etc.

Each module’s capacity is set by the School responsible for its delivery and is divided into four categories:

Yes. Throughout the registration period, Registry staff actively monitor module capacity relative to demand and work with Schools to ensure that as many students as possible can get places on their preferred modules.

What can I do if I've been unsuccessful in getting a place on a preferred module?

The best advice is to immediately go for a place on an alternative module, bearing in mind that you can change your module registration until registration closes. However, there are a number of ways you may still be able to get a place on your preferred module:
