The colors are nice, and the metallic silver header really stands out from the blue background. The particular shade of green in the white graphic doesn’t seem to relate to anything else, but other than that you have the beginnings of a visually appealing site.

1. In your header, “a under graduate” should be “an undergraduate”; “post graduate” should be “postgraduate”. Or, if it’s preferred where you live, “under-graduate” and “post-graduate”.
2. Make your “Login” and “Register” tabs fill the available space. The empty space to the right of the Register tab looks out of place.
3. You have an unfortunate mix of left-justified text and center-aligned text; your banner is centered but the “About”, “Terms”, and “Privacy” fields are left-justified. Pick a single alignment and use it everywhere.
4. There’s too much empty space (“white space”) under your header. Try the same space as above the header, or perhaps twice that.
5. Your dark blue primary div (with the white graphic and the login section) is misaligned horizontally; the border on the left is about three times as wide as that on the right.
6. Your login button doesn’t seem to relate graphically to anything else; perhaps make it the same shape and size as the username and password blanks, and line it up with them?

Good luck!
