New postgraduate students

The University's Induction webpage has information for all new students prior to their arrival and for their first few weeks. The page can be accessed here.

For information on the Postgraduate Registration and Enrolment Procedures please visit here.

Students should to email Student Programmes from their student email account and include their student number, and then wait for a reply. Please email once - duplicate emails cause confusion and errors.

  • How do I complete online enrolment?

    In order to enrol as a student of the University, you must complete the on-line enrolment process. Module registration is the first step in the enrolment process.

  • How do I complete module registration?

    You will receive an email (to your university email account) about module registration once it becomes available to you.. You should click on the link ‘Module Registration’ via the portal in the ‘Programmes’ section. The system will guide you through the process. There is also a guide available which can be opened to help you complete the process. The guide is a PDF document which can be found next to the ‘Module Registration’ link.

    If you are offered a choice of modules, and you are unsure about the selections to make, we would advise that you wait until after the induction meeting with the Programme Director who will advise the correct module choices for the programme.

    Once you have completed module registration, you should then complete the rest of the on-line enrolment process.  Click on the link for Enrolment via the portal and follow the step by step instructions. You can find the enrolment FAQs here.

  • I would like advice regarding the requirements of my degree. Who can I speak to?

    You should make yourself familiar with your degree structure by clicking on the 'Degree Programme Tables' link from your academic history screen. Every degree programme has a Programme Director, who can be consulted if you have any queries.

  • How do I sign up for my seminars?

    You should contact the relevant faculty office directly for this information. Each faculty registers students differently; sometimes it is done via Canvas, sometimes it is done at the first class etc.

  • When will I see my modules on Canvas?

    Canvas is switched on at the start of the semester. You should have access to the module information the day after you have completed the enrolment process. Some programmes may make this information available earlier and the Faculty should have notified you of this.

  • I have completed module registration but I want to change modules. What do I do?

    As long as there have been no manual changes to your registration you should have the link 'Change Your Module Selection' on your portal home page, and can change your modules on-line.  If you don’t have that link you should email Student Programmes with the module name and code that you want to drop, and then provide a short list of module titles and codes in preference order that you would like to register for.  We will amend your record manually. Before emailing student programmes you should check the timetable generator to ensure that there will be no clashes.

  • How do I work out my timetable so that I know which classes to go to?

    You can use the 'Teaching Timetable Generator' link from the 'My Academic Links' tab on the portal to get your lecture times, but you will not know your seminar times until you have signed up for these at the start of the semester. You may also be provided with a timetable by the faculty at the induction meetings.
