What is enrolment?

Enrolment is when you officially register as a student with us.

Step one: Enrolling online

You’ll complete most of your enrolment online before you get here. It’s important that you aim to complete the online enrolment process before you arrive to ensure your first few days with us go as smoothly as possible.

Step two: Enrolling in-person when you arrive

The final stages of enrolment, where you collect your NTU student card, take place when you arrive on campus. Of course it’s best to do this as soon as you can after you arrive, but remember that you need to ensure you've completed enrolment within 14 days of your course start date.

Why enrol?

You’ll need to enrol with us for a number of reasons.

  • It releases your funding – once you’ve finished enrolment in-person when you arrive
  • It gives you access to NOW, which holds your timetable and module information
  • You'll have access to University buildings and your student email
  • It can confirm your eligibility for council tax exemption (for full-time, fully-enrolled students only)

If your course requires you to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (or other fit to practise) check, you must complete this prior to enrolment. If you haven’t done so, you won’t able to fully enrol on your course. Check our list of DBS and FTP eligible courses to find out if this applies to you.

Follow the steps for the type of student you are and we’ll guide you through the enrolment process step by step.

New students

  • Step 1: Find NTU ID number and set your password

    Your NTU number

    You’ll find your NTU ID number on your confirmation letter and at the top of the confirmation email that you will have received when your place at NTU was confirmed.

    Your NTU ID should look something like this: N0123456.

    Your password

    Visit our enrolment page and click the 'get or reset password' link to retrieve your password. Use this password to log into online enrolment along with your NTU ID number.

  • Step 2: Enrol online

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

  • Step 3: Arrange to pay your fees

    If you have arranged to pay your tuition fees through student finance, you will need to ensure that your funding is fully approved. Take a look at our funding checklist for more information.

    If you're paying your tuition fees up-front, you'll be able to make payment arrangements for your fees and check your instalment dates after you have completed your online enrolment.

  • Step 4: Collect your NTU student card (AFTER YOU ARRIVE)

    Once you’ve arrived on campus, complete your enrolment. Take a look at our completing enrolment information, for details of the times and locations of enrolment.

    What do you need to bring to enrolment?

    You'll need to know your NTU ID number. We'll take your photo and issue you with your NTU student card.

    Does this release my funding?

    Provided your student finance application is complete and approved, enrolling in person will release your funding. This should reach your bank account in three to five working days, so make sure you have enough money to live on until then. Read our guide to funding for more information.

  • Step 5: Register with the Student Health Centre (AFTER YOU ARRIVE)

    After you've picked up your student card, you'll have the chance to sign up to a health centre.

    There are health centres based at the City and Clifton Campuses. Students studying at Brackenhurst usually register with the Southwell Medical Centre. Students studying at the Creative Quarter Campus can register at either the City or Clifton Health Centre.

Continuing students

  • Step 1: Enrol online

    You’ll receive an 'invitation to enrol' to your University email address. Go to our enrolment portal and log in using your NTU ID number and password.

  • Step 2: Arrange to pay your fees

    If you have arranged to pay your tuition fees through student finance, you will need to ensure that your funding is fully approved. Take a look at our funding checklist for more information.

    If you're paying your tuition fees up-front, you'll be able to make payment arrangements for your fees and check your instalment dates after you have completed your online enrolment.
