Course Selection

New students on SPS postgraduate taught (MSc programmes) have the opportunity to select elective courses before they arrive. You will be sent an email with instructions and a link to your course selection form. (N.B. Your offer must be unconditional firm to be eligible for course pre-selection). 

Before you choose your courses we recommend that you visit the University's visual course selection and programme builder tool, PATHand use the Programme Builder tool where you can read course descriptions (and try to avoid timetable clashes).  Additional programme-specific guidance can be found below - please make sure you read this fully.

The course selection form will be open from Monday 10th September until Friday 14th September. You can only complete the form once, so take your time.  The courses you are enrolled on will appear in your MyEd - don’t worry if not all of your electives appear at the same time. We will get in touch with you if there is an issue with your selection.

Please check your student email account for a link to the course selection form.
