Queries regarding your course

What units to study, variations to the normal program of study, course plans, or any other enrolment questions please use AskUNE. The Enrolments and Progression Team give excellent advice and will refer on to course coordinators where required.

In AskUNE please select the following in the ‘Topic’ dropdown menu so your request goes straight to the correct person and is answered in a timely manner:

  • Enrolment
    • Re-enrolling
    • Enrolment Advice
    • Sciences

If you have trouble using AskUNE, in the subject type “Seeking enrolment advice…”, or “Need assistance from E&P”, “enrolments and progressions”

The Enrolments and Progressions team are happy to chat with you on the phone too, but it is best to email first to give them background on your issue and nominate times at which it would be convenient for them to call you.

AskUNE is the preferred mode of communication over emails direct to staff, and offers the following advantages:

  • covers you in the event of staff absences
  • ensures queries go to the correct person
  • ensures there’s a publicly accessible record of your queries and the advice you were given


If you have questions regarding your results. In the first instance contact the unit coordinator. You will find their contact details in your Moodle site or in the unit CAUC entry.
