The Enrolment Process

New students

As part of the admissions process, new students will receive an invitation to enrol via email from the Student Admissions Service. If you have conditions to your offer, these will need to have been met before you receive your enrolment invitation.

The enrolment invitation email will provide you with all the information you need to enrol, along with how to set your password for the University IT systems, how to access the 'Welcome' information on our virtual learning environment Moodle and information about the how to use the MyRGU app.

Enrolment normally closes 10 days after the start of formal teaching. The specific date for your academic year will be provided in your invitation email, but if you are worried about meeting this date, please speak to the Student Admissions Service or the academic school where your course is taught.
