How do I request to change a module? 

To request a module change, you will need to download the Module Change Form below and complete the information, save a copy and email it to with the subject heading Module Change Request by the above dates. The form must be completed in full and signed off by the necessary module leaders for both your current module and the new module choices.

How will I be notified of the decision? 

If the change is approved, the Faculty Office will update your record accordingly which will update Learningzone and MyDMU.  A notification will go to the Timetabling office who will amend your timetable to reflect the change.
