Congratulations on securing a place to study at the School of Biosciences. We look forward to meeting you in September.

This information applies to students admitted to the following courses:

  • Biosciences with a Preliminary Year (Biochemistry/Biological Sciences/Biological Sciences (Zoology)/Biomedical Sciences/Neuroscience)
  • Chemistry with a Preliminary Year
  • Medicine with a Preliminary Year.

Online enrolment

We will contact you approximately three weeks prior to the start of your course to let you know that online enrolment is open. If you have any questions about online enrolment, please contact the Enrolment team on +44 (0)29 2087 6211.

You must complete online enrolment before coming to Cardiff (and before 23 September). It is important that you complete online enrolment as early as possible so we can allocate you a personal tutor.

Do not select your modules online, as you will do this at the module enrolment session on 25 September.
