Postgraduate Researcher (PhD students)

Student Registration FormAs a PhD student, you are automatically provided with a University IT account when you register for your course of study (

Your University IT account is linked to your student record so you can use your account for as long as you are a student.

However, as a postgraduate researcher your account is more like that of as member of staff than a student.

For example you will use the staff email rather than the student email, and you will get access to many of the programs that staff get access to but not students.
