Enrolment Postgraduate Religious Studies and Theology


Monday 22 September 2014


Welcome to Cardiff!
On postgraduate enrolment day, you will be introduced to Religious Studies & Theology and its staff, and you will meet your Advisor or supervisors to plan your studies. You should complete the first stage of online enrolment before coming to Cardiff, but students should not select their modules online until they have discussed their plans with their Advisor on enrolment day.
Continuing research students simply need to enrol online, and ensure that the School is notified of any changes in your contact details. You do not need to attend enrolment day, but do come along to lunch if you can! You MUST however submit a module choice sheet, signed by the programme leader to the postgraduate office.

We hope to help introduce you to your period of study at Cardiff with as little difficulty as possible. However, if you have any queries about enrolment, please contact the School Postgraduate Administrator, Helen Szewczyk, either by email (, or by phoning 029 2087 70903, or by calling into her office in room 4.60A of the John Percival Building.

Module selection for Taught Programmes

You should choose your modules of study only after consultation with a member of staff.  Once you have agreed this you should go online to do module selection. This must be completed within the first 2 weeks of term but ideally it should be done immediately you have agreed the choice.   You will not be able to access online 'blackboard' information until you have done this.

Please bring your confirmed module choices to the Postgraduate Administrator in the School Office (room 4.60A) once the form has been signed off by your tutor.
