If you are enrolling part time, you will have to enrol for the modules separately, so the admin is more complicated, as you have to enrol in 3 modules for the 1st year and 2 modules for the second year.  In this case you will have to enrol for Fundamentals, Living without Growth, and the Seminars during your first year /part time load.  Here are the codes for each module:  Fundamentals of Degrowth: 4591/4 Living Without Growth: 4593/4;   Seminars: 4596/4
