Registration for continuing students

Guidance and support for continuing students registering with the university. Including key dates for registration, expected closures of online registration and information for postgraduate students.

Registration for continuing students will be available through the student portal from 09:00 on Tuesday 20th August until 09:00 on Monday 21st October.

All continuing student need to register at the start of the academic year to ensure they keep access to all the university services they are entitled to, ensure the Greenwich Gateway card continues to work, as well as making sure that their student record stays active and up to date.

This is completed through the Online Registration service which is available on the Student Portal from late August through to the early part of the Autumn term and means that students do not need to go to attend Face to Face Registration.  

This will apply to all continuing students studying at Avery Hill, Greenwich and Medway as well as students studying via distance learning or studying at our Partner and Network Colleges.
