We can assist with updating your legal name
Students who wish to change their name legally and have all their records and documents formally updated can do so. Proof of the name change will be required such as a marriage certificate or deed poll.
A student’s legal name is used to generate their email and IT account and may appear in other systems. Changes to a legal name will be reflected in all our records, transcripts, statements, certificates, correspondence and applications. Students who just wish to change their ‘known as’ name should be aware that they will still be officially enrolled under their legal name.
If you are an International Student, please be aware that your legal name must be consistent between your passport and visa. For further advice please contact International@CampusLife.
We can assist with ensuring that your gender is recorded correctly
The University aims to recognise people by the gender to which they identify. We can change a student’s recorded gender on their student record upon request. We do not require medical evidence or any other documentation.
The University will change an individual’s recorded legal sex if they have obtained a Gender Recognition Certificate. We will not ask to see the Certificate, but may ask for documents as evidence, such as a reissued birth certificate or passport.
Any changes regarding gender or sex will be handled sensitively with the strictest confidence.
If you require any wider support or advice, please seek support from Campus Life.
