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 26 September
  • Year Three: 09.30-12.30, Thursday 25 September

A List of Personal Tutors is available on the Year 2 and Year 3 notice boards (and on Learning Central) 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).

Please check that by the end of enrolment week (26 September) you have:

  1. Completed online enrolment.
  2. Confirmed your programme of study when doing this.
  3. Confirmed your modules, that you have the requisite 120 credits, and are on the appropriate modules for your degree programme (including our core modules for Single Honours Students – these are HS1701 Approaches to History and HS1711 Exploring Historical Debate for Year 2; and HS1801 Dissertation for Year 3).
  4. Collected the relevant Handbooks, signed-up for HS1701 seminars, etc from Room 4.45 on the same day as you see your Personal Tutor.

Year 2 Welcome Back Talk

All students should attend a 'welcome back' talk in room 2.01 at 4.00pm on Friday 26 September

Year 3 Welcome Back Talk

All students should attend a 'welcome back' talk in room 2.01 at 4.00pm on Thursday 25 September

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:

Year Two

Year Three

Please visit Year Two History Undergraduate module page or the Year Three History Undergraduate module page for a list of modules currently available.

All requests for transfer should be made to the History Administrator, Lisa Watkins (

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.
