Enrolment for overseas fee status and visiting students

Enrolment is when you officially register on your course and is very important. It's at enrolment that you get your student ID card and access to all university resources. The type of enrolment you should attend is dependent on what kind of programme you're joining.

When: Thursday 14 and Friday 15 September 2017 from 10.00 – 17.30. You will receive an enrolment slot by email, in late August. It is very important that you attend in the time slot you are given.

Please note: You must attend your enrolment session as a priority over International Orientation. As such, we advise you to wait until you have received your enrolment slot by email, before registering for an International Orientation session. Study Abroad and International Exchange students should attend the afternoon session only and Erasmus exchange students should attend the morning session only.

Where: Penrhyn Road campus, John Galsworthy building, first floor, room 1009.

What must I bring?

Important: if you fail to bring these documents, you won't be able to complete your enrolment.

How does it work?

Enrolment is made up of two stages:

Stage 1 (online): you need to register your personal details online through the University's Online Student Information System (OSIS). To save time on the day, we advise that you do this before you leave for the UK. You will receive an email with the link and instructions in advance.

Stage 2 (on campus): you must do this part at the University, in person.

If you are an overseas fee payer (undergraduate and postgraduate), you will be assigned a time slot for this which you will be emailed. It's important that you arrive at the time allocated to you. At the appointment, we will check that we have all your details, confirm that you have paid the necessary tuition fees that are due (where applicable), and how the balance of your fees are going to be paid (where applicable) as well as issuing you with a Kingston University student ID card.

Please remember to bring your original qualification documents (if you are studying on a Tier 4 visa).

if you are an undergraduate or postgraduate, Home/EU fee payer, you will be advised on when and where to enrol when you attend your induction. The induction timetable will be sent to you nearer the time.

What if I don't do Stage 1 before arriving at Kingston?

You must complete this stage before you attend your induction/enrolment. If you haven't been able to register online before you arrive, you will be able to do so on the day you complete Stage 2. However, if you want to avoid queues and make your enrolment process faster, we advise you to complete Stage 1 before you arrive.

Please note: until you complete your enrolment Stage 2 you won't have an ID card or access to many of the University's resources.

Which enrolment must I attend?

There are several different kinds of enrolment, and the session you should attend depends on the type of course you are joining, and whether you've been fee assessed as overseas or Home/EU. You will be emailed with an appointment slot for the enrolment session that you must attend.

What if I miss enrolment?

It is essential that you don't miss enrolment but if you aren't in the UK on time, there will be some late enrolment sessions for international students. You will be sent an email about late enrolment if you have not attended the initial session.
