International enrolment

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 officially become a Kingston University student. This will also give you access to all university resources.

International (overseas fee status), EU and Visiting (Erasmus and Study Abroad) students will receive an email with details of the date, time and location for your enrolment slot. It is very important that you attend the enrolment time slot you are given.

Enrolment dates for September 2020

To be confirmed but likely to be the week commencing 7th September 2020.

What must I bring?

  • Your passport

Important: if you fail to bring all of 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 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.

What do I need to do prior to my face-to-face enrolment?

Prior to your face-to-face enrolment session and in order to complete your enrolment, you must ensure that your financial requirements are in place. Visit our fees page to find out how to pay your fees.

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 and that you arrive in the UK before the latest start date for your course. There may be an opportunity to attend a late enrolment session but only if the arrive in the UK before the latest start date for your course.
