Our registration team will send you a registration instruction email to invite you to register when your course opens. To make sure your email does not go into your junk folder, add registration@gcu.ac.uk to your known senders. 

Below you will find important information relevant to you as well as registration deadlines for students starting with us in trimester A of 2020-21.

New Students 2020/21

We are looking forward to welcoming our students for the 2020/21 session.  There have been some changes to the start dates, induction week will now commence on the 29th September 2020 with classes starting on the 5th October 2020.  Arrangements on finalising your registration will be confirmed nearer the time so please keep checking our pages for updated information.  You can also check our coronavirus update pages for the latest news.

New students will receive their registration emails from the end of July 2020. 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.  Arrangements for receiving your student card will be confirmed nearer your course start date. 

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

Continuing students - 2020/21

We will be sending registration instruction emails to continuing students from July 2020.  This is a staged process so you may receive this a bit later depending on your programme of study.  Your log in details will be the same as those you use to access the university computer systems, so if you try to log in and the student portal does not accept your username/password, you can try resetting your password.

There have been changes to the start dates for 2020/21, most courses will now start on the 5th October 2020.  You can keep up to date with the latest information by checking our coronavirus update pages.  

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