Enrolment

All students must be enrolled in order to study at Northumbria. All students are required to enrol annually and agree to the university terms and conditions. Home students can complete their enrolment process online. Students requiring a Right to Study check (most International and EU, and some Home* Students) must undertake a two-step enrolment process.

Enrolling and Pre-Registration

To enrol or pre-register you need to log into the Student Portal, click on the ‘Enrol’ button on the left-hand side menu and follow the onscreen instructions.

You will need your username and password, which you should have already received by email, and have a digital passport style photograph ready to upload for your University Smartcard. When you have completed this process successfully you will receive a confirmation email to your University email account. See our How to Enrol guides below for more information.

Students must aim to enrol and arrive by their course start date and are expected to attend course induction activities. Full enrolment provides access to systems and teaching timetables, you are advised to complete enrolment as soon as possible. If you fail to enrol by the course deadline, without prior approval, you risk having your record closed for non-enrolment.  

International and EU* Students arriving in the UK:

Online pre-registration is a preliminary stage to Visa documentation being verified once you arrive in the UK and completing your full enrolment. Online enrolment and pre-registration are quick and easy tasks, which enable you to commence your studies and access many essential aspects of University life, such as our IT Systems, the Library and the Students' Union.

Following pre-registration and to be enrolled on your course, you are required to upload your Visa documents via the ‘Visa Upload’ task in your Student Portal. Visa verification is mandatory where Right to Study checks are required – the required documents will have been detailed in your enrolment email. Please allow up to five working days for document checks to be completed - you will receive a notification email once complete which will then confirm your enrolment. Do not travel unless you can enter the UK by the course deadline. Please see our Enrolment Guide for International Students for further information.

* Some Home students may be subject to Right to Study checks these include: Asylum seeker, Dependant visa, EU Settlement Scheme (Pre-settled status).

Arrangements regarding Enrolment and Smartcard collection are updated on a regular basis, you are advised to check back for current details.

New students must aim to enrol and arrive by their course start date, and are expected to attend course induction activities.

The deadline for enrolment is four-weeks for standard undergraduate and postgraduate programmes from the course start, inclusive of induction.

In exceptional cases students may enrol late only if approved and with good reason.

If you fail to enrol by the deadline, without prior approval, you risk having your record closed for non-enrolment.
