Enrolment is when you officially register as a student with Nottingham Trent University.

It also officially confirms that you have arrived in the UK and are ready to start your studies.

You’ll need to start the enrolment process online before you leave your country.

You’ll then complete your enrolment when you’ve arrived in Nottingham.

Start your enrolment...

Step 1: Find your NTU ID and set your password

Your NTU ID can be found at the top of your confirmation email or messages you've received from us relating to your application. It usually starts with an N, for example: N0123456.

Click 'get or reset password' link on our enrolment page to create a password and use this and your NTU ID to log in.

When prompted to input a postcode, please use NG1 4BU.

Step 2: Enrol online

When you have created your password, use this and your NTU ID to log in and complete your online enrolment.

Step 3: Arrange to pay your fees

You'll need to pay your tuition fees - or have arranged an instalment agreement to pay the rest of your fees – before the start date of your course. You can organise this before you arrive in the UK. Follow our instructions on how and when to pay your fees.

Course induction and pre-arrival tasks

Your course start date is on your CAS statement, your confirmation email and in your course induction information.
