Research students 

Please read your latest offer letter

This letter will state what (if any) academic documents need to be checked by Postgraduate Research and Operations.  These documents should be taken to the Student Services Counter, Level 9, Marjorie and Arnold Ziff Building. Students should also ensure that they have visited their School for further induction information.

Please see here for information on documents that we accept.  Also if you are a UK/EU student whose offer is conditional upon the award of a Masters degree, but which has been completed but not awarded yet then this page will also tell you what to do.

Verifying your qualifications (specific student categories)

Before you register as a student at the University, we may need to verify your qualifications in certain circumstances:

  • if you are a postgraduate student
  • if you are an undergraduate student and took your qualification examinations outside the UK
  • if you are an undergraduate student and took your qualification examinations before the year of your university entry.

If you fall into one of these categories, you should bring your original qualification certificates to the University with you.
