How to enrol in a course

Follow this easy step-by-step guide to find out how to enrol in courses for your undergraduate programme.

Once you have accepted an offer of admission into a programme, you can enrol using Student Services Online.

You’ll be able to choose classes for the course you want to enrol in and see how they fit into your timetable. You can change your mind after you have enrolled as long as you swap or drop your course before the Enrolment closing dates.

There are one-on-one advice clinics currently running out of the City and Tai Tonga Campuses.
