Enrolment and registration

Whether you are a new student or are continuing your studies, it is important that you enrol every year. When you enrol for the first time, you will need to do so in person, but in future years you will be able to re-enrol online.

New student enrolment dates are shown below. Before your visit, please refer to the enrolment instructions sent to you. You will need to complete the pre-enrolment process through MySIS (log-in required) before your agreed enrolment date.

Re-enrolling students should re-enrol via the MySIS portal.

Students must re-enrol at the beginning of each academic year through MySIS. If you fail to re-enrol, you will not be entitled to letters confirming your student status, and your registration with Queen Mary will be terminated. 
If you experience difficulty re-enrolling, please inform the Research Degrees Officer for your School/Institute.

You must complete re-enrolment by Sunday 6th October 2019. 

Continuing International Students

If you have a new passport and/or your immigration permission changes in any way please contact the Research Degrees Office so that your MySIS record can be updated to reflect this.

Important: If you have been asked to obtain an Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) certificate, it is your responsibility to apply for and obtain the certificate. You will not be able to enter the UK or enrol without the ATAS certificate. For information about the ATAS scheme and how it may affect you, please refer to the ATAS pages on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website.

Further information about the ATAS scheme can be found on the QMUL Advice and Counselling service website

If, due to exceptional circumstances, you are unable to attend one of the enrolment dates listed above, please contact

Once you have enrolled, you will be issued with an ID card and Queen Mary University of London email address. It is important that you access this email account regularly or set up auto-forwarding to your private email address, as Queen Mary will use it to send you official communications. Please ensure that you keep your contact details up-to-date in MySIS.

All students must familiarise themselves with the QMUL Policy on Research Ethics, including any requirements for formal ethical review, and ensure that their research conforms to it.

You are required to be enrolled with Queen Mary until you have been awarded your degree.

The registration period starts on the date of a student’s initial enrolment and registration with the Queen Mary for the research studies programme. The period of study ends on the date of submission of the thesis, and the registration period ends either with the award of the degree or termination of registration.
