To confirm that you will be joining the School to take up a place on your programme and join all of the core units of study, you now need to enrol online.

In doing so you will be required to submit new information and update your details, ready for the start of the academic year. There are also the School's rules and regulations that you agree to adhere to in the consent and declaration section of the enrolment process. When you register in person, all of the details that you have submitted in your enrolment will be checked and verified. Your enrolment must be completed and submitted before you attend your registration session. You will be sent reminder emails to do this.

Payment of tuition fees is a separate process and no funds will need to be paid to enrol. You will be asked to enrol on each subsequent year of your programme as a continuing student.

Timeline for enrolment

  • enrolment opens in August and is open for all new students as they are invited up until early October
  • the deadline for your enrolment is the day before your registration session

Failure to enrol online before your registration session could result in you losing the place you have been offered if we do not receive an explanation. We strongly urge all new students to contact us at if you require assistance enrolling. Do not forget it and then attend your session unannounced.

How to enrol online

The method you should enrol by depends if you have used our website before.

If you applied for your course through our online student self service website, or have used it before perhaps to apply for one of our short courses, you can now visit it by clicking the 'Enrol Now' button below and complete your enrolment there using the same login details.

If you applied through UCAS or have not used our Student Self Service site before to have an account already, you will receive an account creation email from once your account is made active (this should be received on the same as day your invitation to enrol email).

If you cannot find it, please check your SPAM folders before contacting us at to request that it is resent. This email will contain your login details and a link to the website.


The email address to use will be your personal email address which your account was created with.

If you have forgotten your password, click the 'Click here if you have forgotten your password' link at the bottom of the login page to reset it.


Once logged in, in the left hand navigation menu go to Course Status > Enrolment Tasks


Click the Complete my online enrolment link in the Tasks column next to your course. Check and complete your information as you progress through the enrolment pages. You can save your progress and return to this stage at any point. When you log back in, you can find your enrolment by clocking the view Basket link in the top right menu.

All students can upload a digital photograph of their face for use on their student ID card.

If you are enrolling for a Postgraduate course, you will need a scan of your highest qualification as detailed in your invitation to enrol email to upload on the Upload Qualification page.


On the last page click Submit enrolments, then you will receive a confirmation email of your successful enrolment.


Your term time address

When you enrol online, you will be prompted to tell us where you will be living whilst you are studying with us. Make sure you have the correct address and postcode. You might not yet know where this will be, so you can use your permanent address and update your address with the Student Advice Service when you do know. This might even be after your registration session, which is okay.

If you need assistance or further information from the School in arranging your accommodation, visit the Student Advice Service.

English and Welsh students can register to vote in UK elections.

Central is this year using a new online voter registration service to enable students to put their names down to vote more quickly and simply. We will pass some information about you (your forename, surname, and date of birth) to Jisc, the organisation providing the service. When you sign on to it, you will then have the opportunity to provide the remaining information needed for your electoral registration, and to confirm your electoral consents and voting preferences.

More information about the service, and how it works, can be found at Jisc's Student voter registration webpage.
