Registration

A very warm welcome to all of our new students, and welcome back to our returning students!  All of our new and continuing students need to register online each academic year and our registration team will send you a registration instruction email to invite you to do so.  To make sure your email does not go into your junk folder, add registration@gcu.ac.uk to your known senders. 

Continuing students need to register in September.  This applies to all students who started in Trimester A, Trimester B and Trimester C of the previous session.

To register, log into the student portal using the username and password you have been provided with.

New students - 2019/20

New students will receive their registration emails from the end of July 2019.  This is a staged process, however if you have not received your registration email two weeks before your course start date send us an email, including your student ID and course title so we can forward these to you.  

You must upload or send us a photograph for your student card to be produced and you will then collect your card in September during on campus registration to complete the registration process.  Full details of on campus registration will be included in your registration instructions and posted on our on campus registration webpage.  

Part time students - we will post your student card out to the registered address we hold on your record.

Continuing students - 2019/20

You will receive your registration instruction email towards the end of June asking you to register for 2019/20.  This is a staged process, so you may receive this a bit later.  Your log in details will be the same as those you use to access the university computer systems.  If you try to log in and the student portal does not accept your username/password, you can try resetting your password.  

If you are awaiting exam results or have resits over the summer, you can still register now.  Once your results are published your registration will be confirmed automatically on our systems, or amended if you are not eligible to progress.

Registration deadlines 2019/20

The deadline for completing registration is two weeks after the course start date.
