Registration and enrolment

Ready to join Herts? Before you officially become a Herts student, you will need to complete registration. You'll also need to do this if you’re a returning student.

What is registration?

Registration is a process where you:

  • check your programme details are correct
  • confirm and update your personal details
  • upload a photo for your student ID card
  • complete Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) questions
  • confirm your identity by uploading or providing documents such as your passport, student visa, right to study share code etc.

By completing registration, you will officially enrol onto your programme, agree to follow the University’s rules and regulations, and be liable to pay your tuition fees.

Do I need to complete registration?

Every Herts student must complete registration at the beginning of each year of your programme. This includes all new and returning students, and students moving from one Herts programme to another.

For all new students, you will be able to complete your online registration (the first step) after you've set up your University account.

If you have applied for student finance through the Student Finance England, they will not release your payments until you have fully completed your registration.

What do you need before you start?

Before you start the registration process, make sure you have the following information and documents to hand.

Need help?
