How can PhD students get staff access to modules?

Ideally PhD students should get a staff ISS username which is associated to their payroll number. Then they can be enrolled via Banner.

If this is not possible, please contact your Faculty VLE contact or the ISS Helpdesk requesting assistance with manual enrolments for postgraduate students who need staff access. We need:

  • The student’s ISS username
  • The module code they need access to
  • Confirmation that they are a PhD student
  • Confirmation that they should have the Teaching Assistant role

We recommend the Teaching Assistant module role for PhD Students. This allows them to edit the module/access the Grade Centre. Other roles are described in our roles guide. Tell us if you want a different role.

A member of staff who teaches on the module needs to approve these enrolments. We will not enrol students without confirmation from a relevant member of staff.

Remember that if the student just needs to see a module but not edit it, staff on the module can enrol them as a student.

Comments are welcome, however if you need help or advice please contact the ISS helpdesk on tel (0113) 343 3333, or
