Help and information for university staff on the Induction week and the various online processes that students are undertaking


hi, this guide is for university staff and is intended to give you a summary of the processes and procedures that new students have to undertake to get themselves registered with the university at the start of their course.  While this information is targetted mainly at the September UG intake, the basic principles apply all the year around.
