Enrolment for new students

The University's Induction webpages provide lots of useful information for all new students. You may find the sections below particularly useful:

Enrolment for continuing students

All students are required to undertake Administrative Enrolment annually around the anniversary of your first matriculation and you must complete the process before you are permitted to continue with your studies. Students billed on a semester basis will be required to enrol each semester. Should you change your mode of attendance within the academic session, you will need to enrol again under your new mode of attendance.

Research students are also required to re-enrol when they commence their thesis writing up period.
