The Registry is located on the first floor of the Vernon Square site and is responsible for matters relating to registration, regulations, fees and scholarships. In addition to queries relating to registration and fees, staff in the Registry can provide general advice for all students and where appropriate, provide letters confirming your student status. In other cases they will direct students to the individual members of the Registry team responsible (this may require an appointment to be made in advance).

From this page, you can follow the links in the left-hand column to find out more information about the services in this area including information and help on the formal processes of registration and your academic record.
