Induction & Enrolment

Welcome to UWS if you are joining us for the first time and congratulations on your success if you are continuing with your studies!

Enrolling for the 2018-19 session

The new academic year commenced on Monday 3 September 2018. All eligible students studying during academic year 2018-19 must complete online enrolment.

Term 1 entry: The main enrolment period ended on 14 September 2018. If trying to enrol after this date, and if you have been attending/engaging with your studies, you would need to contact your personal tutor or the programme leader to ask for the Late Enrolment hold to be released, and give reason for your late enrolment.

Check you have completed online enrolment

If you are unsure if you have fully completed online enrolment, you can check in Self Service Banner.

When you click on the Online Enrolment link, you will either see a message confirming you have completed your enrolment or you will see a link to continue with your enrolment.

When you have completed online enrolment, a confirmation email will be sent to your student email account. This will contain an enrolment certificate with a summary of your chosen modules.
