Enrolment, arrival and registration

12

Online enrolment

If you are starting your studies in October 2018, then you should receive an email about enrolment from September onwards. Note - you must have an unconditional offer to enrol; students who require a Tier 4 visa must also have their visa details. The first stage of enrolment is online and involves uploading a photo of yourself for your Uni-ID card.


Warwick Welcome 2018

September 2018 will see the introduction of Warwick's first Welcome Week. A nine-day programme (22nd September to 30th September 2018) will consist of events and activities designed to enable all new taught students to:

  • Settle into university-life
  • Make friends
  • Understand what is expected of you, as students, on your degree programme
  • Understand the breadth of Warwick’s offer (both opportunities and support)
  • Learn your way around
  • Adapt to life in a new country and new environment
  • Be prepared for day one of term

More information will be made available to students in the coming months, however, we strongly recommend that you attend the entirety of Welcome Week to make settling in and adjusting to the University of Warwick a little easier. WMG registration will take place within Welcome Week, on the Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th September 2018, depending on your course and additional WMG induction activities have been scheduled for the following week also (1st October to 6th October 2018), so you need to arrive in plenty of time in order not to miss essential information.


Register with WMG

Registration will take place on Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th September 2018.

Registration usually takes 2-3 hours. You will be given your WMG induction timetable and will then have your first introductory lecture with an academic tutor, which will take approximately an hour. The following week will be taken up with WMG induction events and lectures.

If you know you will arrive after 27th September, it is essential that you inform us using the late arrivals form. There are limits to lateness. If you are arriving late, you must still register with us when you get here. If you are an overseas student, you must have a visa valid for study before we will accept you onto the course.

You must make every effort to arrive at Warwick by the start of term (Monday 1st October 2018). We will try to be accommodating, but we reserve the right to refuse to accept you onto the course if you arrive late.

WMG Registration Information

What should I bring to registration?

If you already have your University card, then please bring it with you. If not, it is helpful if you know your student ID number, since this helps us identify you quickly.
Once registered, you will attend a first introductory lecture which will explain the basics of your course. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions, so bring a pen with you. These sessions are open to new WMG MSc students only; friends
attending courses at other departments, agents and chaperones will not be admitted. We may demand to see your ID at any time to ensure this policy is adhered to.

How long will registration take?
You should plan on registration (including the introductory lecture) taking 2-3 hours. We will do our best to register you as quickly as possible, but please bear in mind there will be queues at busy times.

Can a friend or agent register for me?
No. It is absolutely essential that you register in person; you must not arrange for someone to register on your behalf.

What if I am late getting to the UK?
If you know you will arrive after 27th September it is essential that you inform us using the late
arrivals form. There are limits to lateness. If you are arriving late, you must still register with us
when you get here. If you are an overseas student you must have a visa valid for study before we will accept you onto the course.

I’ve already enrolled at the University, do I need to register with WMG too?
Yes. Enrolment at the University and registration at WMG are different; you must do both. The
University will email you in September with instructions on how to enrol.
