To help spread the load on Succeed when modules open, QEC (Quality Enhancement Committee) has agreed that module opening dates in Succeed can be modified as follows:
Up to now modules have opened on the first Monday of semester at midnight, with the students gaining access around 7am when the upload task runs. The new arrangements will be as follows:
- 1st and 2nd year modules will open on the Monday before the start of semester
- 3rd and 4th year modules will open on the Tuesday before the start of semester
- Post-graduate modules will open on the Wednesday before the start of semester
Please note that for the autumn semester 1st years do not get allocated to their modules until the first Wednesday of semester itself.
This new model will see modules effectively open in Succeed over a four day period before the autumn semester and over a three day period before the spring semester. If a module has, say, both 2nd and 3rd year students on it, it will open on the Tuesday before the start of semester and all students (regardless of which year they are in) will gain access to it at the same time. It will not be the case that 2nd years gain access earlier then 3rd years, otherwise they could gain advantages, such as selecting all the ‘best’ slots on any sign-up sheets in the module.
