School of Engineering and Informatics (for staff and students)

Module choices


Module choices can be selected via Sussex Direct

Module choices can also be selected using the paper forms which can be found below.

Some optional modules may not run if there are insufficient students registered, so please make your choices as soon as you can.


You can look up the teaching times for any module in the teaching timetable.  Students are required to attend all the lectures for a module. For some modules more than one seminar, class or workshop group runs.  Students are only required to attend one teaching group.  Students will be allocated to teaching groups. 

If you can't decide:

Contact your MSc Course Convenor if you need advice before making your selection. Full descriptions of all the modules on your MSc course can be found online in the Department course and module specifications web pages.  

To change an optional module

If you want to change one or more of your optional modules please contact the School Office to request a change.  No changes are allowed after Week 3 of the relevant Term. 

Please don't attend a different module without informing the School Office or you may be entered for the wrong examinations and assessments!

To substitute a module from another MSc course

If you want to take a module from a different MSc degree course, please complete a Change of Module Form available from the School Office.  You are allowed to change a maximum of 30 credits.

To change your MSc course

If you decide the MSc course you have selected is unsuitable for you and you wish to change to another, complete a Transfer of course form, available from the School Office,  as well as a Module choice form (see links above) for your intended new course.

Please collect the three required signatures on the Transfer form yourself, then hand in the two forms at the School Office.
