Change of name and date of birth
This page gives you information about notifying the University of a change of name or date of birth. It is your responsibility to ensure that the University has your correct name and date of birth on its record.
How and when to notify the University of a change of name or date of birth
It is your responsibility to update your student record by filling in the form on SIMS as soon as you have a change of name or date of birth.
If you do not have access to the internet then you can complete and return the relevant form in Related Resources on the right hand side of the page and send it to the address below.
When the change in name or date of birth will take effect
Once you have completed the relevant form then the change will be updated on your student record within 5 working days.
Your updated name or date of birth will then be stored on your record and used until you make another change.
Please note that you cannot update your name once you have received your degree certificate. Any change to your name must be made before you complete your study.
