5 tips for choosing university modules
1. Make sure you actually read everything you can about the module beforehand.
Don’t just skim the page and think you know enough about it.
2. Read over the reading list and choose a couple at random to read now.
It’s one of the quickest ways to detect how bored you’re going to be.
3. Make a ranked list of the modules you want.
You won’t always get your first or even second choice, and you don’t want to be missing out.
4. Really think about your schedule.
Even if you think that a lecture at nine in the morning and a seminar at four on a Monday is a good idea because you’ll be productive in the library and be able to get so much done, that won’t ever happen, and you’ll just regret being born.
5. Does it complement the rest of your course?
You can talk about modules on your CV and how it relates to your future job expectations; you can talk about the skills you’ve developed a lot easier.
