Online enrolment

When you have completed online registration, you will be asked to upload your ID (see ID options below). 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.

  • European Identity Card

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

  • Birth certificate

Next steps

  • Our Finance and Student Records Team will then 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 we are happy with the ID that you have uploaded, your will then be sent confirmation of your enrolment.
  • If your loan is not in place, or we are not clear on how you intend to pay your tuition fees, we will contact you by phone or email to discuss the situation with you and to explain what will happen next.
  • 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. For those opting for online learning in semester one, once you have logged onto Canvas, this will complete your enrolment.
