  • Checking and updating your student record
  • Confirming your module selection
  • If you are liable to pay a fee, during online enrolment make a payment by card or set up a direct debit
  • At the end of online enrolment you will receive a message confirming that you have successfully enrolled

If you do not receive a message that you have successfully enrolled or for any reason you cannot enrol online, please contact us and a member of staff will help you.
