In broad terms, the Registry is primarily responsible for the administration of the student journey from registration through to graduation.
Students, please ensure that you read carefully, the University Requirements Relating to Student Registration, the Student Financial Arrangements, the Data Protection Act and Terms and Conditions of Registration before you sign and complete a Registration Form or any other documentation held within these pages.
The Registry comprises of seven subunits, each concerned with key aspects of this journey.
The Academic Office has responsibility for the policies and procedures for Examinations, processing extenuating circumstances requests, and supporting panels convened to hear academic appeals, allegations of plagiarism and other examination irregularities.
The Data Management Office is responsible for the University QL database, where all student records are stored. This includes training & support for staff, and the initial set up and ongoing maintenance of the curriculum structure.
The Fees and Loans office, working together with the Finance Department and external bodies such as the Student Loans Company, ensure that both invoices are raised and loans are released in a timely manner.
The Graduation and Registry Events Office is concerned not just with the scheduling and organisation of the several Graduations in the Cathedral and on Campus, but also Smartcard production and linking The Registry with the i-zone.
The Student Records and Examinations Office is responsible for the registration of students, and the ongoing maintenance of the student records. This office also deals with the management of the assessment process, including the issue of mark transcripts and certificates.
The Timetabling & Rooming Team make sure that there is appropriate room provision for the students, both for teaching and examination, ensuring that students receive an academic experience of the highest possible quality.
The six units within the Registry share the common aim of providing a customer-focused approach to support the student experience.
