Students must check their UCL email account on a regular basis as a condition of their registration with the University. Important instructions, including those regarding examination entry and module registration, plus other essential Departmental and UCL information, will be circulated via your email. It is students’ responsibility to ensure that they check their email account regularly and respond to messages as appropriate by the given deadline.

Access to email and other UCL services depends on having a working UCL account. Current UCL policy requires passwords to be changed regularly and students need to pay attention to this. The ISD Helpdesk in the UCL DMS Watson Science Library can provide support for account related issues.

5.2.1Email and Moodle

Students will recieve the vast majority of important correspondence via their UCL email account and through Moodle.

The department aims to keep duplicated and general circulars to a minimum; access to large mailing lists is restricted to ensure that students are do not recieve the same message multiple times. However, there will always be some emails that do not apply to all students and some overlap in communications. We ask that students check their emails daily and act promptly in response to any requests made.
