Identity check/Visa checkpoint

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.

Documents to bring with you

Make sure to bring to University with you the documents you need:

  • If you're from inside the EU - you will need your passport (or full UK birth certificate) which will be checked at the identity checkpoint
  • If you're from outside the EU - you will need your passport and visa which will be checked at the visa checkpoint.

Once this is done, we'll be able to issue your student ID card.

Where to go

  • If you are a UK/EU/Swiss student living in University-managed accommodation, this will take place in your hall.
  • If you an ELTU student, this will take place in your department.

Alternatively you can go to the Student Services Centre in Charles Wilson Building – just go to the desks on the right hand side of the reception. You can register between 10.00am and 1.00pm on weekdays between 7 January and 16 January 2019. Please make sure you bring the correct documents!

If you are a Study Abroad/Erasmus+ student you will receive a time to register on 10 January. 


Registration deadlines vary from course to course – so 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.
