Every continuing or returning student must re-register at the start of each new academic year by following the steps below.

A useful Step-by-Step Guide is available. The Guide is comprehensive so you are advised not to print it but (if your web browser allows) keep it open at the same time as you open the eRegistration portal. If you cannot find the answer you need in the Guide or among the Frequently Asked Questions, email the eRegistration team for further assistance.

  • Step 1 - Electronic Registration (eReg) (available online)
    To confirm your personal, financial and academic details and update your University computer and email account (preferably, before you arrive). There are detailed guides available online to help you.
  • Step 2 - Diagnostic Test(s) (more information on the MyCurriculum pages)
    For some degree programmes (eg French, Hispanic Studies, Music), and to be able to take certain courses (eg counselling skills, mathematics), there are diagnostic tests to help you choose the correct course for your level of knowledge and experience. Tests are taken online and should be taken before choosing your courses.
  • Step 3 - Choose your courses 
    To confirm your academic curriculum. For details on how to choose your courses, please check the MyCurriculum webpages for further information and important dates. Exchange students will choose their courses with their Go Abroad Tutor.

  • Step 4 – Choose your Tutorials and Download your Timetable 
    Once your course choices are confirmed, you will be able to choose your tutorials, practicals and labs (where applicable) online using MyTimetable and then download your personalised timetable. Further information is available on the MyCurriculum webpages. Exchange students will be able to access this after they have chosen their courses.

  • Step 5 - Visa checks - Complete visa check (Tier 4 students only)
    The Tier 4 team will email you with information on the time and place of the visa check.
International Students

Please consult the guidance provided in the Immigration & Tier 4 section to ensure you are aware of Home Office regulations and the associated University procedures for registration.
