The first thing all new research students need to do - whether full-time or part-time - is to complete the Enrolment processes and become a student of the University. Enrolment is a
prerequisite to application for registration for a University research
degree, and you will need to complete annual enrolment every year
until conferment of your degree.
There are two stages to new student enrolment, Online Academic Enrolment and Face to Face Enrolment. Once you have confirmed acceptance of your offer of a place on one of our research degree programmes, you will be sent detailed instructions about how to complete new research student enrolment.
Enrolment will take place with the Research Degrees Team, Student
Central, Room 3, John Henry Brookes Building, Headington Campus, Gipsy Lane
from 9.00am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday during the week beginning Monday
17 September 2018.
We will open until 6.30pm on Wednesday 19 September 2018 for
students who are unable to come to the University during office hours.
You will have completed the first stage of the enrolment process online and when you come in to complete Face to Face Enrolment, you will be asked to
check the details you entered and confirmed during your Online Academic
Enrolment. You should also present the original documentation required to
complete this stage of the enrolment process, such as certificates,
All International students should complete both Online
and Face to Face Enrolment by Friday 21 September 2018, and you must bring your
passport, visa/Biometric Card with you to Face to Face Enrolment.
During face to face enrolment, we will also provide you with a brief induction to your programme, the
support and training that is available for research students; advise you about the
payment of fees and issue you with your Brookes student card. The student card will be your
evidence that you are a student and enable you to have 24 hour access to various areas of the University, borrow books from the
Library, activate your computer account and provide access to other University facilities.
