Physics and Astronomy

Enrolment and induction information for undergraduate and postgraduate students at the School of Physics and Astronomy.

Before coming to Cardiff in September, all students must complete online enrolment. This will open approximately three weeks before your programme's start date.

Once you've enrolled online, depending on your programme and year of study, you may need to attend a School induction event at the end of September.
