Postgraduate Registration

Before you can be known as a full-time or part-time student of the University you need to complete registration at the start of the academic session.  This can only be done On-line, within the University intranet via your Student Record.  You must complete Registration within the first week of term.

You will be required to meet with staff in your own academic department and with staff in any department responsible for modules on which you wish to register.  For research students, this means you must also meet with staff in the Graduate School if you are required to, or choose to, take research training modules.

Staff in your academic department(s) will help you choose your modules.  Once your department(s) have entered all your modules and approved them you should proceed to complete online registration via your Student Record on the web.  In order to access your Student Record on the web you must first have completed the admissions process and activated your Aberystwyth University email account.

Registration is accessed via the Student Record. You can register using Computers within the University intranet.  When you sign on to your Student Record you should click on the ‘Online Registration’ button under ‘My Tasks’ heading.  You will then be guided through the process which will ask you to confirm your Personal Details, Addresses, Study Scheme and Modules.  After you have completed registration you will receive a confirmation email. 

You should ensure you attend the Registration, Induction and Advising sessions set up for you by your departments according to the registration advising timetable.   

If you are not able to return to Aberystwyth by the end of the first week of term you MUST contact the Academic Registry by emailing  If you need advice regarding your module choices or you are unclear about when and where you need to register you should contact your department directly.

Please note that if you do not complete registration within the first 10 days of term your access to University facilities will be suspended.


Changes to your registration and student record

Once you have completed registration if you wish to change a module, your mode of study, study scheme, supervisor or subject of research you must complete a Change of Registration Form. These forms are available from your department(s) and must be fully completed and signed by all the relevant staff before being forwarded to the Academic Registry for processing.

You are responsible for data held on your Student Record, you should therefore ensure you view your Student Record regulary and access your student email account regulary as this is our main form of contact with you.  You can make changes to your personal and address details directly on your record online.  For any changes that you are unable to make online, please email for advice.
