    Being from Belgium, of course I have different qualifications than UK students. I've already asked the universities I'd like to attend which qualifications I will need, and I found them on the UCAS website, no problem. However, for my qualification (Getuigschrift van Hoger Secundaire Onderwijs), you have to add modules. I have no idea what to do with that.

    Since most of our classes are required in Belgium and we didn't really get a choice that would impact our future, I have a fair amount of classes and I actually chose very little of them. So should I add a module for every single class I have, even the ones that I didn't choose and am not good at, or just add a module for the classes that are vaguely similar to the courses I'm looking at, or do something else?

    If modules don't really make sense then don't include them. Your universities can always get in touch to ask for more information if they need it.

    That's what I planned on doing, but it says "you must enter modules for this qualification" so I got worried... If you say it's fine though, I'll leave it blank!

    If it's insisting on modules then you'll need to add them in - this is what your referee will be asked to provide predicted grades for and depending on the subject you're applying for might be included in your offer.

    So what do I add in then? All of my classes or just the ones that would be relevant to the courses I want to study?

    Definitely add a module for every class you have or even in smaller units!!!!!
    I applied with German qualifications and we also have little choice, however our grades are done in semesters and the final exams and I added every semester in each subject plus the final exam as one module. This ended up at like 50 modules but that is how it is recommended I think. Also maybe check out ucas for further information (or the British council in Belgium) because I found some information on how to do it there

    I'll definitely check out ucas and the British Council here, thank you! I think I'm going to add every semester in each subject as well
