Registration and enrolment

Registration is the process through which you:

  • Agree to be a student member of the University
  • Enrol on your programme of study
  • Agree to abide by the University’s rules and regulations
  • Agree to become liable for tuition fee payments (in line with the University’s fees and funding policy).

All students must register with the University at the start of every academic year of their course. However, the process differs depending on whether you are starting a new programme of study, (new students) or are continuing on the same programme of study (continuing students).

New students

In order to register with the University you must first:

  • Have received a formal unconditional offer of admission that you have firmly accepted.
  • Have your fee status confirmed. Usually this will be determined as part of the admissions process. If your fee status is unclear the University will contact you for further information.
  • Have set-up your University account (details of your account will be sent to you by email as soon as your place to study is confirmed).

Stage 1 – Student Self Enrolment (SSE)

Stage1 registration is an online process. You will receive an email inviting you to complete stage 1 registration, normally around 40 days before your course is due to start. You should follow the instructions in your invitation email and upload a photo to be used on your student record and your ID card.

Stage 2

Students starting a new programme of study will be registered remotely to complete their enrolment. You will be required to upload copies of appropriate ID to a registration document portal along with any relevant documentation relating to how your tuition fees will be funded. More information about what to upload for registration session can be found on Ask Herts.

Continuing students

All continuing students need to re-enrol every academic year.

Stage 1 – Student Self Enrolment (SSE)

You will receive an email inviting you to complete stage 1 registration online, normally in mid August. Please complete stage 1 before you return to campus.

Stage 2

For all returning students continuing on a programme of study the process for stage two registration simply requires you to log in to StudyNet from 1st September. Please note, you do not need to visit a specific page on StudyNet, just log in. Your student record will update to fully registered status within 2 days.
