Capped units for 2023/24

This webpage contains information about capped units. These are units which have a fixed number of places available on them via SAMIS unit selection.

At the request of departments, some units have a fixed number of places available on them via SAMIS unit selection. Places on these units are therefore limited and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have selected one of the units shown below and then wish to change your selection you are advised to contact Academic Registry first.
