Dentistry

Induction and enrolment information for new students in the School of Dentistry.

All new and returning students must enrol (register and pay fees) online. You will be contacted by email (or letter where necessary), approximately three weeks prior to the start of your programme, advising you that the online task is available for you to complete. The task can be accessed via SIMS online

You are required to complete central enrolment online by following the online registration instructions.

Please ensure that this is completed in advance. This is extremely important because it ensures that your access to teaching and learning facilities (e.g. Learning Central) will be in place before the start of any teaching or induction activities.

Delays in completing Central enrolment may jeopardise this, and could have a knock-on effect on your examination registrations.
