Welcome back to University College Birmingham

Welcome back to our returning undergraduate students

Please see below information for all returning undergraduate students re-enrolling in February 2023. This will cover:

Online registration

You have been sent an online registration email. You must register online before your induction date. To complete online registration please go to your UCB Portal and select Online Registration.

Please note: this will only be available once you have been allowed to progress and results have been released.


When you have completed online registration, if you are an international student, you will also be required to upload your ID (see ID options below). You can do this via the UCB Portal, selecting the “Enrolment” option from the menu, then “Documents” – here you can click ‘Add file’ and upload your ID documents.

For all other students, once you return to campus, you will only need to swipe your ID card, and your enrolment will be automatically completed.

Please note: if your name is now different from the name on the documentation you provide to us, please also upload evidence to support your name change, e.g. deed poll document or marriage certificate. All our systems will use the name on your official documentation.

Acceptable Identity documentation – UK/EEA Nationals

  • British or EU Passport
  • European Identity Card

If you do not have a passport, please upload your:

  • Birth certificate


  • Another form of photo ID, such as a driving licence or proof of age card*

*Please note that we may require additional evidence before we can complete your enrolment.

Acceptable Identity documentation – Non-UK/EEA Nationals

  • A non-UK/EEA passport


  • Your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP)


  • Visa document


  • Home Office letter confirming your residency status in the UK

If you are an asylum seeker, please upload your Application Registration Card.

If you don’t have any documentation to confirm your immigration status in the UK, University College Birmingham will ask for your permission to request this information from the Home Office.

Next steps

  • Our Finance and Student Records Team will review your enrolment details to ensure they are complete and match the information we hold from Student Finance England to ensure your loan is in place.
  • If your loan is in place (and, for international students, we are happy with the ID that you have uploaded) you will then be sent confirmation of your enrolment.
  • Remember that it is YOUR responsibility to ensure that your student loan is in place. If your loan is not in place by your induction, or we are not clear on how you intend to pay your tuition fees, we will charge the cost of the tuition fees to yourself, the student.

If your tuition fee loan is approved at a later date, we will credit this charge and inform the Student Loans Company.

  • Providing everything is in place, you will be enrolled, and a confirmation email will be sent to you. You must swipe your ID card on entering the campus at the turnstiles in order to complete your enrolment.


Teaching commences on 13 February 2023. Timetables will be issued for your course during the course induction.
