Your enrolment email
Before you start your studies, the Student Services Centre will send you your enrolment email. Your enrolment email will include, your IT username and password and instructions for how to complete the four steps of enrolment. The email will be sent to all students who have accepted their offer of study.
We will start sending out enrolment emails to students starting their course in September 2021 in the week commencing Monday 23 August. If you haven’t received your enrolment email by Friday 3 September 2021, please visit the enrolment email webpage for advice.
There are a limited number of programmes running in January 2022 (MSc Data Science and Analytics, MSc Artificial Intelligence and MSc Information Security). If you are starting your course in January 2022, you can expect to receive your enrolment email in December 2021.
There are five enrolment steps you need to complete before you commence your studies:
Complete Online Sign-up
Arrange your Tuition Fee payment
Upload a photo for your College Card
Complete an Identity Check.
Check Campus Connect ‘My Studies’ tab for your modules registrations
- For information on how your department will register you onto your modules, please refer to your department’s handbook. If you have any queries on this, further school and department information can be found here.
You should complete all of the enrolment steps before starting your programme.
More information about failure to enrol can be found on our web pages. To check your enrolment status, log into Campus Connect, click on the 'Enrolment' tab and select ‘Start of Session Checklist’. This will show you when you have completed Online Sign-up, Tuition Fee Payment and Identity Check. The checklist will continue to update closer to the start of term. You may find that there are general information messages with ‘!’. This means that the part of the checklist is not yet live. But don’t worry, you can keep checking every week to see the information and completed steps of your enrolment update.
The standard deadline to return and enrol at the College is 21 days from the start of your programme. However, some schools have set an earlier deadline due to the intensity of the programme at the start of term. Please see below for more information about the start of term and what to do if you will be delayed in arriving and how to continue to complete your enrolment.
The 2021/22 academic year
We are excited to be able to plan for the majority of students to study on campus (Egham or London depending on your course) for courses starting September 2021*.
Your learning will be mainly face-to-face, on campus, teaching and learning support, with some digital elements. This is building on the positive feedback around taking part in digital learning from students over the last year.
We use a range of teaching techniques for blended delivery, for example, the ‘flipped classroom’ which is when you’re introduced to the information before the class, perhaps via podcasts, videos, recorded micro-lectures or items to read online, and then you come together with your tutor and classmates to talk about the information. We’ll be maintaining 1m+ social distancing in our teaching spaces, so some lectures will be face-to-face and some, with very large numbers of students, will be online. We also use lecture-recording, which means that you can watch many lectures when it’s convenient to you. Our students really like this flexibility, and the ability to watch the lecture again and again.
Although Government restrictions have now been lifted, the health and safety of our community remains a top priority. Many of the effective measures we have had in place over the past 18 months will remain, to help protect you, and everyone on campus. The university, the Students’ Union and clubs and societies are planning a full programme of face-to-face events and experiences. We are also planning for facilities such as the library, gym, cafes and bars to be open and we will provide a full range of student support services.
Some online events and activities were very popular last year and so we are building an online programme too. While we are making plans for a full return to campus, we are also planning so that, if there are further legal restrictions, we’re prepared and can support you and your learning.
