Registration for continuing students

Guidance and support for continuing students registering with the university.

Student registration for continuing students has closed for the 2018/19 academic session.  If you did not complete your re-registration this academic year please contact the Student Centre for guidance.

As a continuing student, you need to register at the start of each academic year to ensure you have access to all the university services you are entitled to as well as keeping your student record active.

As a continuing students you will need to re-register at the start of each academic year you are with the university to ensure you student record stays active and you maintain full access to all the university services you are entitled to.  It will also ensure your Greenwich Gateway card is re-activated for the new academic year. 

During Online Registration we ask that you check the courses you will be studying throughout the year, update any address or your personal information, and allow you to pay or inform us how your tuition fees will be paid.

The university will email you to tell you how and when you can register, but in most cases it will be completed using the Online Registration service available on the Greenwich Portal.

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.

2018/19 dates

Online Registration must be completed at the beginning of the academic year regardless of when your original start date was.  Online registration usually opens for the last week in August right through to the last weeks in October.  

However to make sure you have full access to all the university services for the beginning of term we strongly advise continuing students register before the 24 September 2018.

Students will start receiving emails inviting them to register from Monday 20 August 2018.  Any student who had to resubmit a piece of coursework or resit an exam over the summer will receive their invitation emails at a later date.    This will likely be between Monday 3 and Friday 14 September when we close the Online Registration service in the morning to update student records.

Morning closures in September 2018

Online Registration will close each weekday from 08:00 to 10:00 from 3 September to 14 September 2018.

These closures are to allow the Student Records team to process progress decisions from the Progression and Award Boards (PAB) and to set up the records for students who had to complete re-assessments over the summer period, or where the PAB was slightly later in the academic year.

During these times no continuing student will be able to use the Online Registration system.  If you encounter a message saying the system is closed for your cohort, please wait until after 10:00 and try again before contacting the Student Centre.
