We look forward to welcoming all new students starting at the School this September.
For those of you returning for another academic year, we hope you are looking forward to starting the new semester as much as we are.
Here you will find all the information you'll need for enrolment. As we finalise the enrolment schedules more information will be available from this page.

Enrolment dates for all degree programmes are set out below:

We will meet for Induction on Monday 25th September in Room T/2.09 in the School of Computer Science & Informatics, Queens Buildings, 5 The Parade, Cardiff, CF24 3AA.
Part-time students should prioritise the Thursday session if they are unable to attend on both Monday and Thursday.
Students on joint courses where the School of Computer Science and Informatics is not the home school (MSc Computational and Data Journalism, MSc Data Science and Analytics) should attend the Thursday session.
At the beginning of September, a set of introductory videos will be made available to help you select your optional modules for the year. However, it is requested that new students do not attempt to complete the module selection process at the conclusion of online enrolment, since we wish to give you further advice on your module choices once you have arrived in Cardiff.
