Enrolment Year 2 and Year 3: History & Welsh History
Welcome to back to History and Welsh History
Staff members are looking forward to welcoming you back to History and Welsh History Department at the end of September.
Meetings with your Personal Tutor
Students will see their Personal Tutors on the mornings of
- Year Two: 09.30-12.30, Friday 27 September
- Year Three: 09.30-12.30, Thursday 26 September
A List of Personal Tutors is available on the Year 2 and Year 3 notice boards (and on Blackboard) for you to consult. All joint honours students (including BSc Politics and Modern History) have a tutor in History that you can consult if you wish to discuss any aspect of your History studies. Note: For those students taking BA Ancient and Medieval History this is an integrated degree programme and your Personal Tutor is in Ancient History.
You should check outside your Tutor’s office to see when they have scheduled their meetings. You are advised to check before the day as some meetings may well be scheduled early on.
At these meetings you will be able to discuss issues concerning enrolment and teaching in the year ahead. You will also receive copies of your year Handbooks which contains important information for you to consider. You will also receive advice on PDP and be able to submit completed PDP forms from the previous academic year.
Guidance on Online Enrolment
You should enrol online to register with the University and confirm your programme of study (i.e. your degree programme and modules on that programme).

Guidance on Changing Modules
You will recall the advice given at pre-enrolment that we allocate to courses to ensure an equitable distribution of students to modules. This allows us to teach seminar groups in a sustainable and effective way, and also avoids excessive pressures on library resources. You will have been given at least one of your first choices in this process.
There is NO SCOPE for changing modules at this time except: a) in circumstances of a timetable clash, b) where there are serious problems with module selection, or c) if you wish to transfer to one of the following modules which still have some capacity:
All requests for transfer should be made to the History Administrator, Lisa Watkins (WatkinsLJ3@cardiff.ac.uk)
Guidance on HS1801 Dissertation Allocation
Allocation for dissertations will be undertaken in the first two weeks of the semester. This process is based upon preferences stated in the module selection sheets completed at pre-enrolment, and subject to the reasonable distribution of dissertation students among staff. A notice will be posted on the Year Three notice board by Week Two listing students and their supervisors.
