De-registration or re-registration

Graduating from your study programme and being awarded your diploma does not mean your student registration is automatically cancelled. De-registration is your own responsibility and is not compulsory.

Once you have graduated you can choose to cancel your student registration. However if you will continue following a study programme you should remain registered and, if required, re-register for the next academic year.

You can find full details of our registration, de-registration and re-registration procedures under ‘Administrative Matters’. However please keep the following in mind:

  • De-registration does not occur automatically and is not compulsory. It is not linked to the awarding of your diploma.
     
  • If you remain registered as a student you must continue paying tuition fees, but you may remain entitled to a student travel pass and student finance from DUO.
     
  • If you choose to de-register remember to cancel your student travel pass and student finance with DUO. This does not happen automatically.
     
  • Remember that other organisations must be notified once you cancel your student registration (for example your insurance provider or bank). If you are insured under the university’s collective health insurance scheme you must inform the insurer that you are no longer entitled to student discount on your premiums.
