    So basically I need to take 1 maybe 2 extra modules to meet the requirments of a postgraduate course I want to do after my 3 years at undergrad. Number 1 am I allowed to do this and Number 2 if there isn't any timetable clashes is it manageable if said extra modules are only taken for a semester

    Is there a question somewhere?

    I wouldn't normally recommend taking on extra modules, especially not modules which aren't designed to be taken as extra modules, but if they're prereqs for a postgrad course you don't really have a choice.

    Make your choices earlier rather than later, as you tend to have to sign up for them, and some will be more popular than others. And make sure you understand the attendance and assessment criteria for each of your chosen modules.

    This semester I am taking on 2 extra modules - so instead of doing 4, I'm doing 6. So that's 90 credits this semester and then only 30 credits next semester.

    It is not fun and really do not recommend it unless you HAVE to then you don't have a choice. But I wouldn't recommend it especially if you have other commitments such as relationships, socials or family commitments.

    Good luck!
