Please ask them to check that their dashboard filters are allowing them to see all the modules they require. This may mean scrolling to the bottom of the module list and checking to see more modules or clicking on the filters. If the student still cannot see their modules please advise them to contact the programme administrator to check they have been allocated to their modules and had them approved.
