If you have not received an email regarding re-enrolment please log in to Student Records and see if the re-enrolment task is visible and available for you to complete.

You can find out more about becoming a rep on our student representatives page.

How do I change my registration status? (Interrupt / withdraw / transfer information)

Occasionally situations arise that are outside your control and may adversely impact your ability to engage with your studies, i.e. ill health, financial difficulties and other personal reasons.
On these occasions it is often necessary for you to make a change to your registration status.

There are various changes that you can make including: Interruption of study, Permanent withdrawal from College, Transfer of mode of attendance or Transfer of programme of study.

For further information please see the relevant internal pages:

How do I get my results?

Exam results are available after they have been ratified by the Faculty Exam Board. After this meeting your award and your module marks will be published on Student Records. All marks given to you before the Board meeting are not confirmed and may be subject to change. For more information on getting your results see the Assessment & Records Centre intranet pages which also has information on Exams, Progression and Reassessments.

How do I find out my final degree classification and how is this
determined?

You will receive your agreed final degree classification via your Student Record.

The classification of your degree result is determined by the marks you obtain in the examinations you sit and the assessed coursework and oral presentations you complete, as well as any long essays and/or dissertations submitted.  Details on the calculations performed to arrive at your overall classification can be found on the degree classification page of the Faculty Handbook.

What is a resit or a replacement and how do they work?

If you have failed a module due to not meeting the academic requirements, submitting late or not submitting/not attending an exam you can get a resit. A replacement is when your assessment has been deferred due to mitigating circumstances. More information on reassessments and how resits and replacements work is available on this page in the Faculty Handbook.
