Choosing your Modules in the School of English and Drama

This page outlines how to choose your modules for next year in the School of English and Drama.


  1. From Wednesday 15 March read the online Module Directory for 2023/24 to find out more about the modules we plan to offer and how to choose them.
  2. On Wednesday 15 March go along to the module fairs on Teams:
    • English and Drama Module Fairs:
      • Students going into their second year should attend at 1.15pm
      • Students going into their final year should attend at 2.30pm
    • English Module Fairs:
      • Students going into their second year should attend at 1pm
      • Students going into their final year attend up to three meetings: for 'Early Areas' at 2pm; for 'Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century studies' at 2.40pm; for Modern, Contemporary, and Creative Writing at 3.20pm
    • Links to the online Module Fairs in Teams are available via the Undergraduates homepage on QMplus.
  3. Between Monday 20 March and Friday 31 March you should meet your Advisor during their normal drop-in hours to discuss your module preferences.
  4. From Monday 20 March complete the online Module Preferences Form (there are step-by-step instructions for how to do this).
  5. Submit your module preferences before the online MPF closes at 11.59pm on Sunday 2 April.
  6. Once the School of English and Drama has received your MPF, this information will be collated and processed for all students. Please remember that finalising student module allocations is an extensive process that must take multiple factors into account. The School will determine each student's approved module allocation, and then enter this information into MySIS.
  7. The School of English and Drama aims to communicate your provisional module allocations to you in early May. Later in the summer you can check MySIS to see your confirmed modules for the next academic year.
  8. On rare occasions the School may have to cancel a module. This may happen, for example, if the member of staff designated as the module convenor wins research funding and will therefore be absent during the next academic year. If this happens, you’ll be assigned to one of your reserve module choices. Where appropriate the School will write directly to affected students in order to explain the situation.


If you’re taking a joint degree with the School of History or with the School of Languages, Linguistics and Film, please make sure you know what arrangements your other School has put in place.

Students EXTERNAL to the School of English and Drama should follow the module selection process required by their Home School, and request any SED module(s) they wish to take via the MySIS module selection task (or as otherwise directed).
