Registration for new postgraduate students

Registration for new postgraduate students

Welcome to the College of Arts Graduate School. We hope that you will find your time with us productive and enjoyable. We are justly proud of our excellent record in both teaching and research across all Arts disciplines. A postgraduate degree in Arts from this University will equip you well for the future whatever you do on completion of your studies.

By now the University should have contacted you with details of how to log in to the MyCampus student records system and how to register and enrol on courses attached to your programme of study. Full details of the Registration process, including a step-by-step guide to how to complete registration and enrolment in classes, are available on the Registry web pages.

If, for some reason, you are unable to enrol onto any courses, you will be able to do this following the Induction for your programme.  Equally, if you are unclear about which courses you should select, guidance will be provided at the Induction held for your programme of study and you can enrol on the appropriate courses thereafter. In some cases, we will be unable to run courses if there is insufficient demand.

Every taught postgraduate student will have a dedicated postgraduate Convener for their programme of study, whilst research students have at least two academic Supervisors. Your Convener/Supervisor(s) will, if necessary, guide you through your degree programme requirements and assist you in identifying any courses you will be required to complete, but will also ensure all your course choices are compatible with the degree you wish to pursue. Your programme Convener or Supervisor is your primary contact for any academic queries you may have and, especially in the first few weeks, a friendly face who can help answer your questions or point you in the direction of someone who can help.

There will be Induction/Information Sessions at School and/or College level in mid-late September and/or early October (depending on your programme of study). You will receive emails over the summer giving you information about these.

At these meetings we will explain how the College, Schools, Subject Areas and programmes work together as well as providing information on the support networks available to you.

Postgraduate research students keen to know what to expect in terms of communication over the summer months may find the New PGR Student timeline useful.

In the College of Arts we also have a team of Advisers of Study, one allocated to each School. It is their job to know how the University rules and regulations for your degree work, and to support you in understanding them. Normally staff in your Subject Area will be your first point of contact, but if you ever have any queries that they are unable to help with, or if you experience difficulties in your studies and would like further support or advice, then your Adviser should be able to help.

Advisers of Study are as follows:

Dr Kenny Brophy, Adviser for School of Culture and Creative Arts (Cultural Policy, Film and Television Studies, History of Art, Music, Theatre); Email:

Dr Eva Moreda Rodriguez, Adviser for School of Humanities (Archaeology, Celtic and Gaelic, Classics, HATII, History, Philosophy); Email:

Dr Benjamin White, Adviser for School of Modern Languages and Cultures (Comparative Literature, French, German, Hispanic Studies, Italian, Slavonic Studies); Email:

Dr Margaret Tejerizo, Adviser for School of Critical Studies (English Language, English Literature, Scottish Literature, Theology & Religious Studies); Email:


Our Graduate School team is also available to assist you in the College Office at 6 University Gardens or by email at Please feel free to contact them.

I look forward to welcoming you soon and wish you success with your studies.

Dr Barbara Burns
Dean of Graduate Studies, College of Arts
