Online Enrolment and Registration
All students (including visiting students and members of University staff studying for an award) must formally register centrally with the Student Administration section of the University. This takes place at the start of your course and subsequently, every September, will need to confirm continued attendance. The University is required to maintain up to date information on all students, and monitor your attendance and engagement.
You have a responsibility to ensure that you are aware of all your financial obligations and have made the necessary arrangements for payment prior to registration. Late registration and late payment charges will be applied in accordance with the University’s fee schedules in force for the academic session – see full details of fee charges and refund policies.
During the on-line enrolment and re-registration processes you will also be requested to check and complete some personal statistical data. We will send some of the information we hold about you to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). This forms your HESA record, which includes details of your ethnic group and any disabilities you have. HESA will pass your record, or parts of it, to organisations that need it to carry out their statutory functions connected with funding higher education. For further details please see the HESA Student Collection Notice.
Towards the end of your studies, we will pass your contact details to the organisation (usually a marketing company) that has been contracted to carry out the National Student Survey. That organisation will use your details only for that purpose, and will then delete them. About six months after you graduate, you will be contacted to ask you to fill in the HESA ‘Destination of Leavers from HE’ survey. We will not give your contact details to HESA. You might be included in a sample of leavers who are surveyed again a few years after they graduate. If so, we will pass your contact details to the organisation that has been contracted to carry out that survey. That organisation will use your details only for that purpose, and will then delete them. (If you do not want to take part in these surveys, please let us know).
