Pre-registration 2017


We are using a system of “pre-registration” where students register for the courses they will be studying in the following academic year. 

All students going into Stage 3 next year will have some choice about the modules they take.

It is your responsibility to make sure that you enter your choices into the University’s system. You will have from Friday 5th May - Thursday 11th May 2017 at 8.00pm to make your choices in the S3P system. You will receive messages from the University about how to do this nearer the time. (If you have forgotten your password for the S3P system, you need to sort this out!)


To make your choices you will need to read your degree regulations:

To find out more about the modules in Stage 3:

or see the Slides from the Pre-registration briefing on 23rd March 2017: Pre Reg Stage 3 Optional Modules‌.

To find out more about the Career Development module (NCL3007) go to:


  • It may be that you are considering changing your degree programme.
  • It may be that you are considering moving to do the MComp degree, where you take Masters modules in the 4th year. - It may be that you are registered on a degree “with Industrial Placement” but are considering not doing a placement. (The system will only allow you to register for modules if it expects you to be at University next year!)

In each of these cases, you will need to complete a DPD Transfer Form (available from Reception) signed by Dr Neil Speirs, the Degree Programme Director. You must contact Dr Speirs not later than Wednesday 26th April 2017 to do this. If you wish to change programme and have not had a form signed prior to pre-registration going live on 5th May, you will not be able to see the correct modules in the S3P system.

You might need to discuss your options with your tutor or another member of staff. 

Please do not leave it until the last moment to complete your submission – you might find that the choices are more complicated than you thought and you might need some advice or help.
