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 15 and Friday 16 September. 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
  • Where: Penrhyn Road campus, John Galsworthy building, 1st floor, room 1009
  • What must I bring:
    • Your passport
    • Your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) (if you are entering the UK on a visa). We will help you to collect your BRP when you arrive in the UK; and
    • Your original qualification documents (if you are studying on a Tier 4 visa)

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.

  • If you are an undergraduate Home/EU fee payer, you will be advised on when and where to enrol when you attend your induction. The induction time table will be sent to you nearer the time.
  • If you are a postgraduate Home/EU fee payer, you will be emailed a time slot for your enrolment.

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.

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.

If you need further details or advice, please contact the enrolment team

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.
