Before you see your Tutor...

Please check the lists of Personal Tutors on the Year 2/3 noticeboards (or on Learning Central), in case you have a new Tutor this year.

At these meetings you will have an opportunity to discuss your progress so far and your options for the year ahead. You may need to log into SIMS to confirm or choose your modules, so please ensure that you have your username and password to hand.

You will also be asked to submit your completed Personal Development Plan for last year. If you have mislaid your PDP form, you can download a new one from the web (see links below).

Changing modules

You should have selected the modules you wish to study at Stage One Enrolment in April, but it may be possible to make changes now if you wish. Do not change your modules before seeing your Personal Tutor. Some courses have limited numbers of places, so you must check availability before you attempt to enrol for them (see below).

If you did not complete Stage One Enrolment in April, you must discuss your options with your Tutor before selecting your modules online. Please think about which ones you would like to do before coming to see your Tutor. You can consult the Archaeology and Ancient History Module Catalogue online — see the link below. Please ensure that your choices conform to the regulations for your degree programme, which are set out in the Module Catalogue.

Changing Medieval History modules

This is not normally possible, except in circumstances of a timetable clash, or where there are serious problems with module selection, or if you wish to transfer to a module that still has some places available. You should check on the History enrolment page to see whether there are places available on any of the Medieval History modules.

All requests for transfer need to be approved by the History Administrator, Lisa Watkins (, who will be available in the School office (room 4.54) on Thursday and Friday to assist with any serious problems with module selection or approval that have not already been resolved.

Dissertation supervisors

Dissertation supervisors will be allocated early in the semester. The list of supervisors for HS1801 (History Dissertation) will be posted on the History Year 3 noticeboard by week 2; the list for HS4335 (Ancient History Dissertation) will be posted on the Ancient History Year 2/3 noticeboard as soon as possible.


All students in Years 2 and 3 are required to attend an induction talk — see the timetable above for times and venues.
