In-person registration

New full-time students need to:

Lincoln Medical School students and any other students starting from a location which is not a University of Nottingham campus need to follow these instructions.


You do not need to complete in-person registration (just online registration) if you are one of the following:

  • Returning students 
  • Part-time students
  • Distance learners

  • If you have let us know about your EU settlement status already, please follow the instructions above for British and Irish Students to complete your in-person registration.
  • If you still need to provide us with confirmation of your EU settlement scheme permission, this can be done via this online form. Once completed your in person registration will be confirmed within 3 working days.


All other international students

You must book an appointment to confirm your in person registration and have your passport and visa/immigration documents checked and/or scanned. This must be completed no later than three weeks after your course start date.

Please remember to bring the following to your in-person appointment:
