eVision Update

The installation of new functionality for the eVision student portal will impact widely on other systems over the mid-semester break period 16- 23 April 2014.

A number of existing systems are being permanently replaced by eVision, and will be decommissioned at the same time.
View the ITS Service Notices for more information.

Changing your Course

From Saturday 5 April until Sunday 27 April, the system for course changes will be offline while the University works on the eVision student portal.

Try to make any first semester course changes by Friday 4 April if you can. No changes to your course of study will be possible while the system is offline. This includes Programme, Major, Minor, Endorsement and paper changes (including thesis).


The Guide to Enrolment tells you what you need to do to complete your degree and lists the papers that are available in 2014.

You will need this information to plan your course and complete your application.
