Registry division

Students outside art building

Registry’s main role is to act as the definitive record keeper of students and of programmes and modules on behalf of the University. Its work underpins a student's academic career from post-registration through to graduation and supports academic and administrative staff in a number of areas including academic and student related Regulations and Codes of Practice and institutional and national quality matters.
