Capped units for 2024/25

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

Before looking at the information on this page about capped units, please read our guides Choosing your units online and Help with Choosing Your Units.

About capped units

All year-long and semester 1 units are "capped". Capped units are units where there are a limited number of places available, and places are granted on a first-come, first-served basis.

When there are no more places left, and capped units become full, we'll list them below.

If you attempt to choose a unit where no more spaces are available, you will receive an error message informing you that the unit is full. If you wish to be added to the waiting list for that unit please follow the instructions provided in the error message.

If you have chosen a capped unit as one of your optional units, but now wish to change your choices – please do not undo your choices, as you will lose your place on the capped unit. Instead, please contact Academic Registry.
