Why can't I use my Student ID as part of my email address?
A Student ID is a unique identification of a
student. The Student ID has many functions one of which is
to identify their examination results on the notice board
without revealing the name of the student.
The previous practice of using a Student ID
in the email address made it difficult for students to keep
their Student ID confidential. There are other legal and
privacy issues relating to the Student ID.
With this in mind, the Mail-ID was introduced
to identify the student email and used for their email address.
The student Mail-ID is printed on their enrolment form and will
be printed in future invoices.
