Service standards

Registry services are committed to providing all of its customers with a high quality service.

Service standards have been developed to give our customers a clear indication of the level of service you can expect from student administration services.

In setting these standards the service has to be aware of University policy related to the processes we manage, constraints of external influence on our processes – SLC/UKVI and other external agencies and the commitments already made by the University to students.

Where standards are set, this refers to our office hours of 08:45 to 16:30, Monday to Friday. Students can contact by email outside normal opening hours and a response will be sent as soon as possible following the re-opening of the service.

Opening hours

We will maintain our advertised opening hours 95% of the time.

Student issues

Registry services is an on-line and telephone interface with our customers, and has responsibility for a whole range of key University processes. Student issues are raised by students over the telephone or by email queries.

Staff dealing with a student issue will take ownership and responsibility of that issue and ensure it is fully resolved, even if it means following up with other service teams, departments and liaising with a colleague who may have taken over the issue.

If an issue cannot be resolved within 24 hours, staff will keep the student informed until the issue has been resolved.
