1.1  In this context, ‘registration’ is exactly synonymous with the term ‘matriculation’ which is to be found in previous editions of the University Regulations and other authoritative sources. Similarly, ‘register’ and ‘registered’ equate to ‘matriculate’ and ‘matriculated’.

1.2  Every student of the University, without exception, must complete registration at the beginning of each academic year and pay the fees appropriate to their programme of study or research in order to maintain their status as a student in the University, or in an Institution recognised by the University Court on the recommendation of the Senate, or in a College associated with the University.

1.3  Any student who fails to complete the registration process at the start of the academic year of study will not be a registered student of the University of Glasgow and may have their studies terminated by the University.

1.4  A registered student shall be entitled to the use of the Library and to the exercise of a vote in the election of a Rector.

1.5  In completing the registration process the student undertakes to observe the Sponsio Academica and the Copyright and Personal Data regulations (see Regulations 2, 40 and 3 respectively).

1.6 Every student registered for an undergraduate or taught postgraduate award will be automatically enrolled onto the University’s Academic Writing Skills Programme (AWSP) and should complete this programme as instructed. Completion or Non-completion of the AWSP will be recorded on student transcripts. Any student who was enrolled for the AWSP while previously registered for an undergraduate or postgraduate award will not be enrolled for the AWSP on a second occasion.

1.7  A person elected to any student office in respect of which the Senate agrees that the incumbent may interrupt their course of study or research is deemed to be a registered student.

Students in Continuing Education and Preparatory Courses

1.8  Students enrolled on non-credit bearing courses and those on preparatory courses are not normally eligible for registration as students of the University. The Senate does, however, recognise for the purpose of registration, credit-bearing courses which, though not of a qualifying standard for any degree or equivalent award of the University, are offered for students preparing for subsequent admission to qualifying courses of the University.

Timetables of Teaching and Assessment

1.9  Teaching will normally be conducted between the hours of 8.30 a.m. and 6.00 p.m. Mondays to Fridays. Exceptionally certain class meetings may be timetabled outside these hours, including but not restricted to evening class and weekend courses offered by Short Courses and other School field trips and study abroad.

1.10  Formal timed assessment examinations[1] held on campus and online will, as far as possible, and with the exception of courses offered by Short Courses, be conducted between the hours of 8.30 a.m. and 6.30 p.m. Mondays to Fridays. However, examinations may be timetabled to end later than 6.30 p.m. Mondays to Fridays or to take place on Saturdays. Some online examinations operate in different formats involving longer time periods such as open 24 hour examinations.

Limitation of Admission to Qualifying Courses

1.11 The Senate reserves the right to refuse admission to any particular qualifying course because of restricted facilities either of accommodation or of teaching, or lack of demand.

Application of Regulations

1.12 Students are subject to the regulations for degrees and other academic awards that are in place at the time when they commence the programme of studies or research relating to that award. (On undergraduate programmes that require formal entry to honours following completion of the second year of study, the honours programme of studies commences at the beginning of the third year of study.) In cases where regulations are amended after the commencement of the programme of studies, the revised regulations may be applied to a cohort of students only if the changes benefit all students. Before applying such changes, the students must be notified.

[1] Formal assessment examinations include class tests and practical tests.
