Registration

You have to tell us each new academic year that you are going to start, or continue studying with us. You can register online through our student portal. You will be prompted for your username and password. You should use your domain login (the one you use to log in to computers on campus).

Your username is on your student ID card and in your registration email. If you are a new student, we'll send you registration instructions after you have accepted your unconditional offer. If you don't receive them 2 weeks before your course starts email joininginstructions@gcu.ac.uk.     

Login to our portal by clicking on the link below. After you login, follow the Registration link you'll see on the left to start registration:
