Enrolment information

There are two stages to enrolment, these are pre-enrolment and face to face enrolment. You must complete both to be fully registered onto your course.

Pre-enrolment

Pre-enrolment is an online process to verify your personal details and you will be asked to confirm that you are attending your course. All students will receive an email entitled Important Pre-Enrolment Information, which will explain what you need to do during pre-enrolment.

Before you start completing online pre-enrolment, you may find it useful to read the Pre-enrolment Guide.

Face-to-face Enrolment

Face-to-face enrolment takes place at the University where you will be met by a member of staff who will check your enrolment documentation. We will check your personal details and resolve any outstanding enrolment tasks. We will then take your photo and issue you with a Student ID card. This is also your Library card and allows access to Students’ Union events, so please keep it safe as a replacement charge will be incurred if this is lost or damaged. Finance staff will be available if you have any finance queries.

What To Bring With You

It is vital that you bring the following with you:

  1. Any correspondence that includes your eight digit Student ID number.
  2. Two forms of identification:
    a) Original photographic ID: Valid passport or Valid UK photo driving licence. Please note: if you are an international student or a non-British passport holder your first piece of identification must be a valid passport.
    b) One further piece of ID from the following: Credit or debit card or EU ID Card or Non UK photo driving licence.
    Please note we are unable to enrol any student who does not provide the required two forms of identification.
  3. Original qualifications, original certificates/slips if you have not already submitted them. We will photocopy these if necessary. Please visit the UCAS website to clarify which qualifications the university is sent automatically.
  4. Confirmation of how you are paying your fees. Please bring any sponsor letters with you if you are being sponsored for your course, or your University or College Payment Advice from Student Finance England, unless you have already uploaded this.
  5. Your Accommodation Arrival Information email if you are moving into Halls of Residence.
  6. Your mobile telephone number if you have one.
  7. Your preferred personal email address if we do not already know it. If you do not have your own email you will be provided with a free University email account.

Tuition fees and the funding available to you depend on a wide variety of different factors. It is important to find out which apply to you before starting your course. When you enrol, you should bring all relevant documentation related to how you will pay your fees. Further information can be found on our fees and funding pages.

After you have completed enrolment you will be emailed confirmation of your enrolment, and if your course meets eligibility criteria, a Council tax form.
