Once you have registered online, you complete the registration process by collecting your student card (or receiving it in the post if you are a distance learner). 

 

Continuing students

Continuing students should login to register now. Your login details will be the same as those you use to access the University computer systems.  You can find your username on your student ID card and in your registration email.

Forgotten your password or it is not working?
