Dates of term and enrolment

Details of the enrolment process are given on the Welcome website. If you do not enrol there will be certain penalties, for example, for UK undergraduate students, we will not be able to report your arrival to the Student Loans Company and they will not pay your loan into your bank account.

The following table informs you of the standard Dates of Term. If you live in Halls of Residence or University lodgings you should arrive the day before the first day of Term. A small number of programmes have different term dates, including the International Foundation Programme and some programmes in the Institute of Education; your Programme Handbook will inform you of the correct term dates. Some programmes, such as Geography, have field course requirements; please see your Programme Handbook for more information.
