Selecting modules

Selecting your modules

You can find an up to date list of modules available in the Department here:

  • Before you choose your modules in the Department of Language and Linguistic Science you should check whether you meet the prerequisites for the modules you want to study. Those are listed on the module description (please see the link above.)

  • Final Year modules are all capped with a few places specifically reserved for Visiting Students. Unfortunately, it is possible that these places will fill up quickly and you will not be able to get a place on modules you wanted to attend. We will of course do our best to find you alternative and appropriate modules.
  • You need to be aware of the type of assessment and the time at which it takes place.
    • Closed examinations
      You must ensure that you are able to attend these examination sessions, otherwise your modules will not be validated.
      • Modules studied in term one will be examined in week one of term two (beginning of January)
      • Modules studied in term two and three will be examined in the exam period in term three (end of May - mid June)

  • When choosing modules, read all related information to see if it is appropriate for your time at York. Check with your course coordinator at your home university the relevance and appropriateness of your module choices.

  • For ERASMUS students, please note that 20 York credits are equivalent to 10 ECTS. In most cases you are required to take 20 ECTS each term. You should seek advice from your home university in terms of the requirement for your degree. It is your responsibility to ensure that you meet those requirements.

Module registration

Module registration

Final registration for modules will not take place until after the first supervisory meeting in the first week that you arrive. This means that although we will always try our best to accommodate your module choices, in some cases there might not be places available, or we may not be able to resolve timetable clashes. In these cases you will have to consider new options, so that you may not always get the modules that you want. You should bear in mind that it will be assumed that you will take the modules that you are then registered for and will then not be able to make changes unless you can prove that it is really necessary. If this is the case, you will need to supply evidence that you have clarified this with your home university.
