As a degree apprentice, your time with us may look a little different to that of our campus-based students. But you can still make the most of your university experience, as we have plenty of resources and support for you to access - whether you're on campus or working remotely. 

Here's everything you need to know to get started at the university on a degree apprentice course.


Activate your IT account

Check your personal email inbox three weeks before you are due to start your course. You will receive an email containing your student ID – this is what you'll need to activate your IT account.

Start your IT induction and check what equipment you need to get started on your course.

Register online with the university

After you've activated your IT account, you will receive an email to your university account asking you to register online. You must use your new university username and password to complete registration.

We strongly encourage you to complete your registration as early as possible, and at least 48 hours prior to your programme induction, as failure to do so will limit your access to programme materials, undertake assessments as well as progressing on your programme.


Apply for your university card

Once you've activated your IT account you will receive an email to your university email address asking you to upload a photo for your university card. As an apprentice learner you should still complete this step, as this will give you access to our library system including online materials.

Please note that you will not be sent a university card directly but your programme team will coordinate how you receive your card.  If you have any questions please contact


Explore Moodle

Moodle is our online learning platform and will be your point of reference about your programme. You will need your university username and password to access Moodle. These will be available the next working day after you have completed online registration. 

You will find more information about your course, modules, and will be able to access resources such as your student handbook. 


Complete module enrolment

You'll only need to do this if your course allows optional modules. 


View your academic timetable

You will be able to view your academic timetable online closer to your course start date.  If you have any questions please contact:


Take our Digital Student online module

The Digital Student module on Moodle provides you with learning resources to develop the skills and knowledge that will help you in your university education. 

You will need your university username and password to access the Digital Student module on Moodle. These will be available the next working day after you have completed online registration. 


Download the MyNottingham app

If you have a smart phone, make sure you download the MyNottingham app for quick access to emails, maps, academic timetables and meal cards. 


Get to know our Digital Technology Services

From wifi access to storage solutions to digital security and printing on campus, Digital Technology Services are here to help you with all of your digital needs. Our online Smart Bar will be able to help you with any troubleshooting questions you may have. 

Online and digital tools are also available to you to assist with your learning, including Office 365 and Microsoft Teams to name a few. Find out what tools are available to you and learn a bit about how you can use them.


Get your Covid-19 vaccination

We encourage all apprentices to have had their vaccine doses before travelling to our campuses. If you are registered with a GP, you will be able to book appointments at a vaccination centre, a community pharmacy run site or at some GP run sites. Find out more about GP registration
