4.1

The University expects all candidates to enrol in order to be recognised as a student of the University.  All candidates shall enrol in accordance with the enrolment instructions for the particular programme of study and within the prescribed enrolment period.  

4.2

Candidates are required to enrol within the prescribed enrolment period:

  • If enrolling for the first time with the University
  • If enrolling for the first time on a particular programme of study
  • If progressing to the next level of study, the next year of study or in some cases, the next part of study and attending  on a full-time or part-time basis
  • If the University is expecting a fee to be paid in accordance with the University’s regulations governing student finance and fees.

In order to enrol with the University, candidates, where applicable, are required to provide evidence of entitlement to study at the University in accordance with:

  • The specific programme requirements.
  • The University’s regulations governing matriculation.
  • The laws governing study in the United Kingdom.
  • Fitness to return to study regulations.

4.4

Where the candidate does not provide satisfactory evidence of entitlement to study at the University in accordance with Regulation 4.3 above and by the deadline stipulated by Academic Services, the candidate will be deemed ineligible to enrol (unless Regulation 4.5 below applies).

4.5

Where the candidate meets all requirements to enrol (in accordance with Regulation 4.3) except for the University’s requirements governing matriculation, the candidate may, at the discretion of the Admissions Office, be permitted to provisionally enrol for a specified period of time, conditional upon the candidate agreeing to meet the University’s requirements governing matriculation by the deadline stipulated by the Admissions Office. If the candidate then fails to meet the University’s requirements governing matriculation by the deadline stipulated by the Admissions Office, the provisional enrolment will lapse, the candidate will be deemed ineligible to enrol and Regulation 4.6 below shall apply.

Where the candidate is deemed ineligible to enrol and/or fails to enrol within a prescribed enrolment period, this will result in the candidate’s candidature lapsing and the withdrawal of the candidate from the University.  Requests for the reinstatement of the candidature and permission to enrol late shall be determined administratively by a senior member of Academic Services staff (in consultation with the candidate’s College) on behalf of the Academic Regulations and Cases Board.
