In-person registration

New full-time students need to:

  1. register online, and
  2. complete in-person registration at the start of your course 

If you have previously studied here but are starting a new course, then you must still complete in-person registration.

If you are a student starting your course from a location which is not a University of Nottingham campus, including Lincoln Medical School students, you will need to follow these instructions.


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

  • Returning students 
  • Part-time students
  • Distance learners

How to complete in-person registration

How you complete in-person registration depends on your citizenship (not your fee status). Please follow the steps below which are relevant to you. 


British and Irish students

  • When you arrive on campus you need to log in to our campus wifi (Eduroam) using your university email and password (not your applicant details). 
  • This will complete your in-person registration automatically.
  • You must log in within 3 weeks of your course start date, for your in-person registration to be confirmed. 
  • British/Irish citizens and students with EUSS are not required to book an appointment to complete in-person registration.

Students with EU settlement scheme (EUSS) permission

  • 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 you have completed this 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.

Please note, in person registration can only be carried out from the start date of your course, and you must complete this within three weeks of that start date otherwise you will be unable to join your course.  

If you have a Student visa and a Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) card that is being delivered to the university, you can collect this at the same time as completing your in person registration.

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

  • Your Nottingham ID number
  • Your passport
  • Your immigration permission (entry clearance vignette and Biometric Residence Permit, for example) to demonstrate your right to study in the UK. You will need the original documents.

Any student starting their studies off campus including Lincoln Medical School students

Virtual in-person registration

This includes students who are out on placement as part of the MArch (RIBA) programme, students who are based at the University of Lincoln and students on collaborative partnerships requiring studies to be commenced at a partner location, most often outside the UK. 

You will need to complete this form by the registration deadline. The registration deadline for degree level courses is three weeks after the course start date.
