Get sorted for the coming year now

The start of semester is fast approaching. Get yourself sorted by completing the annual details, and selecting and submitting your papers through your eVision portal.

If you've done this and need to complete the declaration, make sure you do so by the due date in your eVision alert to avoid a late fee.

Students studying

Wanting to make changes to your 2017 course of study?

If you have yet to complete the course enrolment declaration for the main enrolment period you can still make changes through your eVision portal under Programmes and papers. Make sure you submit your paper selection on the Review and Confirm page.

If you have completed the declaration you will need to complete a change of course form.

See the Changing your course page.
