Enrolment is the process you need to complete in order to become an official Kingston University student. For many students it is completely online and involves you providing information which will create your student record.
International students are required to complete online enrolment and attend a compulsory physical check-in appointment when they arrive on campus. This is the second part of enrolment. Once you have successfully completed online enrolment, you will receive an email from our admissions team inviting you to book your Check-in appointment..
Completing your online enrolment is an essential part of coming to university. All universities are required to report on statutory information to the UK Government, so many sections include mandatory information. When the Government reports on this, the information is anonymised and does not include identifiable information.
Enrolling at the right time is very important as it gives you access to:
You will complete your online enrolment on OSIS, our applicant and student portal.
You will be asked to complete an online form to provide information including:
You will also be asked to read and agree to:
After you have completed your online enrolment, a member of the enrolment team will check and verify your identity by checking your identity document against your uploaded ID card photo.
Once we have completed this, we will confirm to you, by email, that your enrolment is complete. These emails will go out from Monday 12 September.
If there are any problems with your online enrolment, will we be in touch with you via email or phone to resolve this.
UK and EU students can provide either:
One item from the following: passport; UK photographic driving license; Citizen Card or other form of identity with the Proof of Age Standards Scheme (PASS) approved hologram; Kingston University ID Card; EU Identity Photographic Card.
Two items from the following (which collectively should contain your date of birth and photographic ID): birth certificate; UK bank card; National Insurance card; National Health Service card; EU medical card (EHIC); SLC final assessment form/schedule of payments; original qualification certificates; Inland Revenue photographic registration card; UK FE/HE photographic student ID card; staff photographic ID card; international photographic driving licence.
You must provide the original valid passport that you may have uploaded to OSIS earlier (if the Home Office is holding this, an official Home Office letter may be acceptable instead).
You will be contacted separately by your partner institution to tell you how to complete their enrolment. This will include providing evidence of your identity directly to the partner institution, not Kingston University.
If you are going to be attending classes at a partner institution there may be other things you need to complete. The partner institution will be in touch with you directly about this.

If you are studying at one of the following colleges, you will need to have your identity verified by your partner college, which may be in person. The partner college will contact you with full details about this process.
