On your return
When you return to UCB you should:
- Be sure to attend the induction session for your course. In order to complete enrolment and get your ID card you will need to have the necessary documentation to have your fees assessed.
- Renew your NUS membership and any travel cards which may entitle you to cheaper travel on rail and/or bus in the West Midlands area.
- Ensure that you complete and return any forms as requested by UCB before the start of term.
- If you are entitled to a student loan, you should have returned your Declaration Form to the relevant Student Finance company.
- If you have not yet successfully completed an item of assessment from any of your modules, you may have an exam to re-sit, or an assignment to re-submit. Check with your Year Manager and the Examinations Office about any dates and deadlines that you need to know. If you are required to repeat a module in full, you will normally have to pay a repeat fee for the second attempt.

You can obtain the necessary forms from the International Student Centre on the 7th Floor at Summer Row or by visiting the UK Visas and Immigration page of the Gov.UK website.
