Access your accounts
Eight weeks after your course
Allow sufficient time to back up your work and transfer your files.Your computer login remains active for eight weeks after you finish your course so that you can copy or transfer any important files and information from studentcentral and networked folders.
One year out
You can access your Office 365 account for one year after your course finishes. During this time you can export contact information and download documents from your OneDrive folders. You can also share your new email address and forward useful email messages. See how to access your email for the first year after you graduate.
Up to a year after graduating, you can access your studentfolio profile and export your studentfolio records to another eportfolio service. Likewise, you can access and download your blog as an XML file to use in any other Wordpress installation.
You can use any remaining funds on your UniCard to purchase items at university outlets up to a year after finishing your studies. You can claim a rebate on any money left on your account but this will incur a £10 administration charge so we recommend spending your funds within this year.
Continue your studies
If you gained your undergraduate degree with us, you may be eligible for a 10 per cent discount off tuition fees for future courses, including postgraduate degrees. This alumni discount may be used in conjunction with the five per cent early settlement discount. If you achieved a 2:1 or above in your undergraduate degree, you could be eligible for the £3,000 Vice-Chancellor’s postgraduate alumni scholarship for a masters degree.
If you’re thinking about PhD study keep an eye out for new funding opportunities and studentships available throughout the year.
About six months after you graduate, the university will contact you to find out what you are doing. This is part of a national survey – the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey – which is conducted on behalf of the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) which all universities are required to do. Once you receive your invitation, please take a few minutes to respond as your answers inform how we can advise future students on their career options.
As we are required to achieve an 80% response rate, you may hear from us more than once to encourage you to complete the survey.
