Arriving students 



Results Day

The University will check your examination results as soon as they are released and will contact UCAS to confirm which students have met the conditions of their offer and have a place to study at Nottingham. 

Once results have been checked arriving students will start to receive information from the University related to their arrival. You will receive emails from the University which will include information about your arrival, accommodation and registration with the University. You will also receive a confirmation mailing from Natural Sciences which will include information about induction events and course registration.


What you need to do once your place at Nottingham is confirmed

Once you have accepted your offer from Nottingham and made the grades you need to start preparing for your arrival.   

Complete Online registration - This is available from September 4th and should be done prior to your arrival.  In your first year you register online and then confirm your attendance in-person during Week One. 

Activate you University username and email account - This can be done once you have completed online registration.

Upload a photo for your student card - If you do this online before you arrive so the card is ready once you get here. 

Start working through the Your University Journey Nooc - Once you have sorted out your University account you can login to moodle and start working through this to prepare for university study.

Open a Student Bank Account - lots of the banks have different deals available for students including interest-free overdrafts, complementary travel insurance, exclusive discounts and free student rail cards so now is the time to shop around to get the best deal for you.   

Pack your things ready to move to University - There is a comprehensive list of what to bring with you provided in the pre-arrival information sent out in September but the key thing is to remember things you can’t buy while you are here: important personal documentation (passport, driving license, birth certificate, id, health forms), notes from A levels and text books (often handy in your first year), medical stuff (any prescription drugs, repeat prescriptions, doctor's note about long term conditions), financial information (student loans company, sponsorship, bank details) and any personal items you might like to remind you of home.
