- Q: I'm MSc Computer Science student without a Computer Science first degree. Do I have to take all the three restricted courses, even I have good expereince in programming (or databases, networks)?
A: In the case of you have strong experience on programming (or database, networks), you could opt out G54PRG (or G54DIS, G54SAN). I'd suggest you talk to the course convenor who teaches the course in week one after their lectures, to seek their advice based on your background.
Please: email me so I'm aware of your change of coruse choices and ca inform Student Services.
- Q: Can I choose more than 180 credits?
A: No. To obtain a MSc at University of Nottingham, students must take 180 credits. The enrolled courses and exam marks will appear in students' transcript, and can't be replaced by other courses once formally enrolled.
- Q: In the Autumn online course enrolment, do I need to choose courses in Spring?
A: Yes, you'll need to temporarily enrol in total 180 credits, with your Spring courses. At the beginning of the Spring semester, you could change your Spring courses after one week of lectures. Courses in Autumn can't be changed once formally enrolled and taken.
- Q: Can I choose 70 credits in Autumn and 50 credits in Spring?
A: Yes in theory. However please bear in mind that you'll need to be prepared to put a lot of your time in Autumn to complete coursework and prepare exams. Please also check the timetable to ensure there is no clash between your chosen courses.
- Q: Is there a reading list for my coruse?
A: Reading lists are given in individual courses, provided in the Moodle course page.
- Q: Can I change my Autumn modules later?
A: No, once your Autumn modules are formally enroled, they can't be changed. Their marks will appear in the final transcript.
