August – December 2011
Updates:
Please note that modules which have the letter Y in their code are yearly modules and are thus to be examined at the end of the academic year, i.e. in May 2012. All other modules (which do not carry a Y in their code) are semester modules and thus will be examined at the end of the semester in which they are taught.

Thus, you will have exams in December 2011 in the following modules:
– Introduction to Media and Communication (for all)
– IT for Communication (for all)
– Political and Constitutional Development of Mauritius (for those who took the Politics minor)

The other modules will be examined in May 2012.

Module Registration Sheet
The MRS has been issued and is with me. You need to check and sign for modules you are taking this semester (including the dissertation and placements). You may also withdraw from modules on which you have enrolled but will need to sign also. If you have not enrolled on any module and do not plan to take any module this semester, you do not need to sign.

In fact, students who have not made any or much progress for their dissertation are advised not to register for the dissertation. Remember that the dissertation represents 10 credits (i.e. more than 3 modules) and will impact on the classification of your degree…

    • No, this is the time-table for Year 3 students. You should contact your Programme Coordinator or Registry for a copy of the time-table for Year 1. It is also normally affixed on the Faculty’s notice board.

  6. Good Morning Christina,

    Trust you are doing good.

    I wanted to know how do I extend for a 5th year. I still haven’t recieved any letter from UOM for payment and I still have to submit my 2nd workplacement report and start my dissertation.

    Please note that my 2nd Work Placement is ending on 22nd July and that I’ll be abroad as from 26th July up to 25th August.

    Thanks to advise about registration, just in case I do not get any letter from University.

    Regards,
    Lucie

    • Dear Lucie,

      Your Programme Coordinator for final year will be Dr Kasenally. So I would advise liaising with her. Anyway, when Uni resumes on 8th August you should try registering online and contacting administration for registering and payment.
