Registration (all students)

There are three parts to registration:

1.  All students - register online before you arrive and print out your Certificate of Registration.  You can register online between 5th and 15th September.  Please ensure that you have registered online and that you have uploaded a photograph for your student card by Saturday 15th September 2018. 

2.  International students -  pre-registration checks

When you register online, the system may produce a Pre-registration checklist for you. If one is produced for you, you must attend a Pre-registration check, before you register in person. 

You must attend a Pre-registration check in Wills Memorial Building on Monday 24 September before you register with the Faculty.  You will need to go to entrance A and should aim to arrive for a pre-registration check at least 30 minutes before your Faculty registration slot.

3.  All students - attend Faculty registration on Monday 24 September in The Great Hall, Wills Memorial Building, Bristol.  See the welcome week timetable for details of the times.  Please remember to bring your original degree certificate(s) with you as you will be required to show them at registration. 

Full details about Faculty registration and other essential information can be found in the Postgraduate Registration Guide.  

We look forward to welcoming you soon. If you have any queries in the meantime please e-mail or telephone Daniel Rydval on +44 (0) 117 331 5133.
