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.
SUNDAY 9 SEPTEMBER,
Pathfoot Dining Hall, 10-4.30
MONDAY 10 SEPTEMBER,
Pathfoot Dining Hall, 9.30-4
Local students can pick up their cards the week before semester starts as follows:
Monday 3rd September to Friday 7th September (until noon): Student Services Hub
The enrolment process involves various steps the student has to undertake. This box should hopefully help you direct students to the correct support service to help them.

If a student is having difficulty with the enrolment process, staff can use the “Student Status Screen" on the Portal to identify where the issue is, and then contact the relevant team for help and further guidance.
Requesting to change degree:
Postgraduate students – refer to Graduate Admissions, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Undergraduate students – before enrolment – refer to Admissions, by emailing email@example.com
A change of degree will most likely result in a change of modules so please note the deadlines below.
Change of module deadlines
Students can change their module selections via the Portal, up to two weeks into teaching and the deadlines are:
Autumn modules: 5.00pm, Monday 24 September 2018
Spring modules: 5.00pm, Monday 28 January 2019
Beyond these dates the student will have missed too much teaching to be reasonably expected to catch up, and no further changes are permitted.

There are a number of year 1 modules which now have more students registered than can be accommodated in Logie Lecture Theatre:
Education: this module is running with 2 timetabled slots using the following module codes: EDUU9E1 and EDUU9X1, students can change their selections from one to the other using the “Change you Module Selections” link on the portal. The only difference is the timetable, EDUU9E1 and EDUU9X1 are the same module.
Sociology: this module is running with 2 timetabled slots using the following module codes: SPCU911 and SCPU9X1, SPCU911 has had to be moved out of Logie and as a result a number of students will be contacted and advised to change their selection to SPCU9X1, students can change their selections from one to the other using the “Change you Module Selections” link on the portal. The only difference is the timetable, SPCU911 and SCPU9X1 are the same module.
Psychology: the faculty will be repeating the lectures an hour after the timetabled slot, all students are registered on PSYU911 and the Faculty will let students know when to attend via canvas
Sports Studies: the Faculty will be double teaching this module so there will be 2 timetable slots, but the Faculty want all students registered on the one module code SPSU911, they will let students know where/when to attend
