We can’t wait to see you in January! If you're a new international student, don’t forget to complete registration.
You'll need to follow the steps in your registration portal which includes checking your personal and programme details online and then booking your registration appointment on campus, where you will bring your identification and documents, and the team will make sure everything is correct. You will also pick up your student ID card and your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) if you have requested to collect from the University and it is ready for collection.
