Your arrival

Opening times

Once you have completed online registration, the final step is attending your Identity Check or Visa Checkpoint at our Registration Event on campus. All new students need to complete this at the start of term to fully complete registration and receive a student ID card. The purpose of these checks are to confirm a student's identity and nationality and that those with a visa have valid permission to study with us. 

September 2024

For our September 2024 starters, your Identity Check and Visa Checkpoints will take place on campus in the Charles Wilson Building Sports Hall and you will need to ensure you have booked an appointment to attend. The link to book an appointment is included in your invitation to register as well as any reminder emails that we are sending out to you. Details of the documents you need to being can be found on our Identity check and Visa checkpoint pages.

Some of our courses start prior to the beginning of term (PGCE, Pre-sessional courses, some postgraduate taught programmes) and prior to the Sports Hall opening.

For these courses, your department will usually arrange for you to complete your Identity Check as part of your induction programme and so you are not required to book a separate appointment.

Your invitation to register will confirm the arrangements made for your Identity Check so please make sure you check this carefully. 

The Charles Wilson Sports Hall will be open during the following times, but don’t forget you will need to ensure you have booked an appointment as you may be turned away if it is busy.
