How to enrol

Follow these steps to enrol at NTU, whether you’re a new or returning student. Once your course has started, you have 14 days to enrol.

What is enrolment?

Enrolment is when you officially register as a student with us. This happens in two steps:

  • Step 1: Enrol online before you arrive

    You’ll complete most of your enrolment online before you get here. Complete the online process before you arrive so that your first few days with us go smoothly.

  • Step 2: Complete your enrolment when you arrive

    The final stages of enrolment – where you collect your NTU student card and Winter Welcome wristband – take place when you get here. You need to complete enrolment within 14 days of your course start date.

Where can I enrol?

You can enrol at any campus, regardless of where you're usually based. Head to one of the following locations to complete your enrolment:

  • City Campus: Student Services Centre, Central Court, Newton building, Level 0
  • Clifton Campus: Student Services Centre, Clifton Pavilion
  • Brackenhurst Campus: Brackenhurst Library

International students who have chosen to collect their BRP at NTU should enrol in the Newton building at the City Campus.

You'll be able to enrol at NTU every weekday between Monday 6 January - Friday 21 February 2020.

Why enrol?

You need to enrol because:

  • It releases your funding – if you’re a UK student, this will happen when you arrive and complete enrolment in-person
  • it gives you access to NOW, which holds your timetable and course information
  • it’ll give you access to University buildings and your student email
  • it can confirm your eligibility for council tax exemption (for full-time, fully enrolled students only)
  • for international students, it confirms that you’ve arrived in the UK and are ready to start your studies.

If your course requires you to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) or Fit to Practice Occupational (FTP) check, you must do so before you get here. If you haven’t, 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.

If you’re a new or returning student, follow the relevant steps and we’ll guide you through the enrolment process.

New students

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

    Your NTU ID number is in both the letter and email you received that confirmed your place at NTU.

    Your NTU ID will look like this: N0123456.

    Your password

    Follow the 'get or reset password' link on our enrolment page to get your password. Use this and your NTU ID to log in to online enrolment. If you’re an international student, when prompted to input a postcode, use NG1 4BU.

  • Step 2: Enrol online

    Once you have your password, login and complete your online enrolment.

  • Step 3: Pay your fees

    If you’re a UK student and you’ve arranged to pay your tuition fees through student finance, make sure that your funding is 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 completing your online enrolment.

    If you're an international student, to fully enrol on your course you’ll need to pay your tuition fees in full – or set up instalment arrangements before arriving in the UK.

    You may also want to set up a UK bank account when you arrive – you can amend which bank account you use to pay your instalment plan if you wish.

    How to open a UK bank account:

    • Compare available accounts and decide which is going to be best for you.
    • Visit your Academic School office and request a 'letter of introduction for UK banking facilities', this confirms your UK address and course before you can open your account.

    You'll also find payment advice for international students and advice and guidance for sponsored students online.

  • Step 4: Collect your NTU student card and complete enrolment when you arrive

    When you arrive on campus, we’ll issue you with your NTU student card, which completes the enrolment process.

    If you're an international student, to complete your enrolment, you'll need to present your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP), passport and visa decision letter within 10 days to the enrolment team. Collect your BRP from the place listed on your visa decision letter – this will be a Post Office or the enrolment point in the Newton building at our City Campus.

    Your student card

    Your NTU student card is your key to University life. As well as being an ID card, it's your:

    • University building and library access card
    • Nottingham Trent Students’ Union (NTSU) membership card
    • sport and fitness membership card
    • cheaper travel card on Nottingham City buses (for an extra fee)
    • cash card for NTU cafés and printing costs.

    Where can I enrol?

    You can enrol at our City, Clifton, or Brackenhurst campuses, regardless of where you're usually based. International students who have chosen to collect their BRP at NTU should enrol in the Newton building at the City Campus. Complete your enrolment at the following locations:

    • City Campus – Student Services Centre, Central Court, Newton building, Level 0
    • Clifton Campus – Student Services Centre, Clifton Pavilion
    • Brackenhurst Campus – Brackenhurst Library

    Take a note of your NTU ID, as you’ll need it when you enrol.

    If your student finance application is complete and approved, enrolling in person will release your funding. It should reach your bank account in three to five working days, so bring enough money to cover your expenses for a week. If you’re a UK student, read our guide to funding for more information.

  • Step 5: Register with a Student Health Centre

    When you’ve got your student card, register with a health centre.

    There are health centres based at the City and Clifton campuses. Students at Brackenhurst usually register with the Southwell Medical Centre. Students at Confetti can register at either the City or Clifton Health Centre.

  • Step 6: International students

    Some international students are required to register with the police. If you're on a course of more than six months, you may need to register with the police within seven days of arriving in the UK as a condition of your visa. Check your passport to see if you are required to do this as it's very important.

Returning students

  • Step 1: Enrol online

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

  • Step 2: Pay your fees

    If you have arranged to pay your tuition fees through student finance, make sure your funding is 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 completing your online enrolment.
