Enrolment Postgraduate History

Monday 22 September 2014


Welcome to Cardiff!
On postgraduate enrolment day, you will be introduced to History 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 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 ensure that you complete a module selection sheet and ensure that this is signed by the programme leader before bringing it 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 Humanities Building.
