Registration, enrolment and attendance
Information to help you support students through their enrolment, registration and when monitoring attendance.
Find out about how and when a student should register, how a school can help with module enrolment and best practice for attendance monitoring.
All students complete online registration for each academic year of their studies, while new students must also collect their student ID card and have their ID checked as part of registration. Further details about registration are below.
It is the responsibility of the parent school to ensure that students enrol for their modules online and that all module and programme data is up to date and accurate.
Monitoring attendance is recognised as an important element in supporting both student retention and performance.
Attendance code of practice (taught students)
Students are expected to attend all timetabled sessions. The University is clear about its expectations of students and in the information that schools provide to students to enable them to attend regularly.
Change of module
Students can change modules after the module enrolment system closes using a paper form.
Change of programme
Students are not entitled to change programme, however, if places are available and the student meets entry criteria they may be able to move to a new programme.
Extensions to study period (taught postgraduate)
A standard procedure is in place for taught postgraduate students to be given extra time to complete their degree programme. This also extends their library and IT access.
