Registering with the University

Registration is important. It is also quick and easy.

Once you are registered, we can prepare your University ID card so that it’s ready for you to pick up at the start of term. Once you have your card, you can access everything you need on campus, from meals to lectures.

In December you should have received an email with a link to an online registration form. (If you did not receive this email, please check your spam filter, then get in touch with us at if you cannot find it.)

Complete the online form…

upload a passport-style photo

…and tick the box to say you accept the University’s regulations.

It’s really that simple, and we strongly recommend that you do this as soon as you receive the email.

Every year we register thousands of new and returning students. Only a few encounter problems but those problems almost always involve the photo – so please, please make sure you follow the guidelines and send us the right sort of photo. Because without a suitable photo, we won't be able to issue your student ID card.

If you encounter any problems with registration, please contact

Completing registration when you arrive

To finish your registration you need to attend either an identity checkpoint (UK/EU students) or a visa checkpoint (non-EU students) when you arrive.


Registration deadlines vary by course – check when you need to register by. But don't leave it till the deadline - we recommend that you register as soon as you can after you arrive.

Returning students

If this is your second, third or fourth year, please refer to the Student and Academic Services website for registration information.
