Student Registry

The Student Registry has administrative responsibility for postgraduate students. You are advised to make yourself familiar with the information on its Cambridge students website, including the Code of Practice for Research Students.


You should use CamSIS for administrative tasks such as applying for leave to work away from Cambridge, updating your personal data (address, phone number etc) and reading your supervision reports.

Supervising undergraduate students

Most of our PhD students give supervisions to undergraduate students: see the information for supervisors to find out about this.
