Course Unit Selection Process

Students continuing to their second, third or fourth year of studies will need to select course unit options on the student system. Course unit selection will be open from 11th July to the 1st August. To make sure you get a place on your selected course unit options you will need to enrol before the deadline as those popular course units do get filled quickly.

Students will make their course unit selections using the programme specifications outlined on the 'course units offerred' page of the School's website.

Please refer to the programme specifications related to your year and programme of study. 

Once you have decided on your selection you will need to go to ‘My Manchester’ student portal, enter your username and password and login. Once you have logged in, click on the TOOLS tab and click on the STUDENT SYSTEM link. From here you will need to click on STUDENT CENTER and select ENROLL. Further details on how to select your course units is available from A guide to adding your course unit selections.

Note students will have been automatically enrolled onto compulsory (mandatory) course units, which you can view via the student system; therefore you only need to select ‘optional’ course units related to your programme of study.

Once you have selected your course units, make sure to ‘confirm your selection’ as stated on the guide. In some cases the system may return an error stopping you from enrolling against a particular course unit. If this is the case then follow the instructions from the guide.

If you encounter any errors or problems not listed above then please contact the School's Teaching and Learning Office, by emailing mathematics@manchester.ac.uk. If you are not sure whether you meet certain criteria’s related to your programme of study, please carefully read the programme specifications from the website mentioned above.

Mathematics course unit timetables

Provisional schedules have been added to the course units on the student system; however note this may be subject to change due to lack of room availability or change in lecturer. These provisional times are also available by cohort from the School's Timetabling website.

The majority of level 2 course units comprise 2 hours of lectures and a 1 hour tutorial and/or lab. Some level 2 course units have a selection of tutorials scheduled, therefore in the first instance, students will be placed in a holding tutorial which is not scheduled. However, in August students will be allocated a tutorial that fits into their current timetabled components. Students will be informed by email.

For level 3 the majority of course units comprise 2 hours of lectures and a 1 hour tutorial and/or lab (for a 10 credit course unit), however these are scheduled as 3 hours of lectures due to the process to allow podcasting. In most cases, the 2 hour lecture slot scheduled, the last hour is allocated as a tutorial, but please double check this with the lecturer during your first lecture.

School of Mathematics representation and feedback

The School has a feedback page which under useful links provides information on examination feedback, unit survey results and examination scaling, and lecturer’s responses to student comments from the unit surveys. You may find the information helpful in making your choices. You may need to login with your username and password to access the page.

Outside Course Units

Some programmes allow students to choose a subject other than mathematics.  Further information regards outside course units is available on the Course units and credits page.

Third year students taking MATH level 2 course unit options

Third Year students who are able to enrol onto MATH level 2 course units as part of their programme will need to complete a level 2 options form which is available here electronically. Please check the criteria of your programme of study before applying. The decision to enrol a third year student onto a MATH year 2 course unit will not take place until the majority of year 2 students have completed their course unit selections. Therefore we recommend that you enrol onto a level 3/4 course unit option which can be substituted for the level 2 course unit option which must be recorded on the form. Please make sure you check that there are no timetable clashes.

Useful links

Any problems or concerns with the process please contact the Teaching and Learning Office either by email: mathematics@manchester.ac.uk or via reception in Alan Turing Building.

Any advice on what course units to choose please contact either your Academic Advisor or the Year Tutor (or for joint programmes the Programme Directors).
