Online registration

Registration is the process by which you formally agree to the University's terms and conditions of study and is a requirement for all students. Enrolment enables you to attend your classes, access campus facilities and obtain your University ID card.

Much of the information that we require will already have been provided to us via your application – however, we do need you to check this to ensure that it is correct. We also need to collect some additional information that wasn't provided as part of your application.

Step 1 - Retrieving IT credentials

Your IT credentials will become available to you six weeks prior to the start of your programme. You will not be able to complete the online registration process until you have received an email inviting you to register, and have collected your credentials.

Setting up IT credentials

If you are yet to access your IT credentials, please visiti our IT credentials web page and follow our simple step-by-step instructions here.

Step 2 - Prepare a photo

Before you register online, it is important that you select an appropriate photograph for your student ID card. This photograph will also be entered onto your student record and may be used to confirm your identity when using the services provided by the University.

Photo guidelines

The uploaded image must:

  • Be a recent photo of you alone
  • Be upright (i.e. vertical, portrait)
  • Show your full face with eyes open
  • Be without any hats or headwear (unless for religious or medical reasons)
  • Have no other people or objects in the photo
  • Have a plain light background
  • Be in colour, clear and in sharp focus
  • Have a file format of JPEG (.jpg extension)
  • Be less than 1MB (megabyte) in size
  • Be approximately 300 pixels wide and 400 pixels high, which is 4cm x 5cm (at a resolution of 200 pixels per inch)

If you are experiencing difficulties cropping and uploading your image, please email us.

Step 3 - Accepting the University's Terms and Conditions of study

During the online registration process, you will be asked to agree to the University's Terms and Conditions of Study. The University's Terms and Conditions of Study form the contract between you and the University. To view and download a full list of the University's Terms and Conditions, please click here.

Step 4 - Set up Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is required when accessing University online services and IT systems remotely and is an additional security step that verifies your identity. 

Multi-Factor Authentication

If you have not already registered your mobile device with DUO mobile app, you will be required to complete this to access the online registration system. Follow our simple step-by-step instructions here.

Step 5 - Register in-person

All students are required to register online and in-person to complete the official enrolment process. Induction activites and programme talks will be taking place the week of the 27th September. Further information to follow.
