All students must complete Online Registration to become a student at the University. It is best to do this as soon as possible. If you have not done this before you arrive, you should make this your priority. Once you have completed Online Registration, you have access to a range of University benefits, such as access to the library, computer and online facilities, and your student email.
If you have not been able to complete Online Registration, please contact the Online Registration helpline, or visit the Welcome Registration Hub for assistance.
You will have decided as part of your visa application whether you will collect your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) card from campus or from the post office. If you are collecting it from campus, please access the International Welcome Hub at your allocated appointment. You will need to bring your passport, UKVI decision letter and your student ID number, which is included on your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS).
If you are an international, EU or EEA student, you will need to have a Right to Study (RTS) check when you first arrive at the University. This allows the University to ensure that you have the right to study in the UK.
You will need to attend in person, and bring the following items:
Your passport, including your visa
Your student ID number, which is included on your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS)
Your BRP card (if you have one)
You will receive your student ID card once your RTS check has been completed.
Students arriving from certain countries are required by law to register with the police either on arrival or within 7 days of arrival. It will state on your visa decision letter if you are required to do this.
