Coronavirus Recovery: advice and latest information

Message to Students

The University is actively working to provide a range of alternative assessments instead of on-site examinations which will now no longer take place for the remainder of the current Academic Year up to and including August 2020. Alternative assessments will not require your attendance at the University. Your College will provide you with further communication in due course in respect of the nature and forms of these alternative assessments and students are asked to wait for further notification at the current time.

For all courses leading to professional registration in the School of Medicine, College of Human and Health Sciences and the Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law (Legal Practice Course only), students are advised to await specific information from their Colleges.


If an Examination Board has awarded you the option to enrol as an external student (please refer to your progression decision on your student record), you must complete the following enrolment process.

Students on the Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice (LPC) do not need to complete this process, but will be automatically enrolled by the School of Law.

Students on nursing programmes should check with their College whether they need to complete the process below.

Overseas students holding a Tier 4 Visa will not normally be permitted to enrol as an external student due to conditions set by the Border Agency.
