New Postgraduate Home and EU students

Welcome to UCB

Welcome to all new Postgraduate Home and EU students who are joining us in January 2019. The information below will help you prepare for enrolment and the start of your course.


If you have been offered a place at UCB, you will be sent an online registration email from December. You are asked to register online before your official enrolment date so that all your personal information is accurate and up-to-date before you attend, and that you have had time to read any terms and conditions or policies and privacy statements. This will mean that the actual enrolment day will run smoothly.

When is enrolment held? 

Enrolment will take place on the 9th Floor Research Centre of Summer Row.

If you were not able to attend your enrolment appointment, we are still enrolling on the following days:

  • Wednesday 23rd January - 10am to 12pm & 1pm - 3pm (all courses)
