During the summer vacation each year undergraduate students will be sent a letter by the Clerk for their Degree detailing the arrangements for Advising and Registration for the forthcoming session.
Included with this letter will be a number of documents and an advising appointment (or in the case of some areas of study, details of when advising sessions will be held for particular groups of students), it is important that students attend their advising appointment/session. Students should contact the appropriate Clerk as soon as possible if they have a good reason not to be able to make their appointment. Only in exceptional circumstances, is it possible to re-arrange it.
In advance of their advising appointment, students will find it helpful to consult the prescription for the degree programme which they are studying which can be accessed in the University Calendar . Details of specific courses can be accessed in the Catalogue of Courses . It is helpful for students to take some time before their advising appointment to consider which courses, in addition to those which are compulsory for their degree, they may wish to study.
After a student's appointment with their adviser, students will be formally registered and their fees status checked. Students should bring with them SAAS or other award letters. Student ID cards can then be collected.
Bursary cheques are issued from the Student Reception, University Office on production of a valid ID card.
Student loans are paid directly into students' bank accounts normally within 4 days of registration (barring any computer glitches!).
