Enrolment is a two stage process to register as an official Kingston University student. Enrolling at the right time is important as it unlocks things like your course timetable and student funding.
Online enrolment will open in August and you will receive an email with full instructions on how to enrol through OSIS (Online Student Information System) once your place has been confirmed (eg. your status changes to unconditional firm).
Please note: If you have a conditional offer, you will only be sent the instructions once your results have been received and your place has been confirmed.

Stage 2 enrolment will take place on a Kingston University campus. You will find the date and time for your Stage 2: In-person enrolment slot in your Welcome schedule or we will contact you with information about your enrolment slot. So please ensure your contact details - postal and email - are up-to-date on OSIS.
You will need to have:
Your valid UK passport (if you don't have a valid UK passport, you must bring both your UK birth certificate and a form of photo ID).
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).
In order to complete your Stage 2 enrolment you will need to have met the financial requirements for funding your tuition fees. These will differ depending on your fee status, level of study and how you intend to pay. Please check When do I pay my fees? to find out what you need to do to avoid your enrolment being delayed.
If you are an international student, you will also need to bring:

If you are studying a Kingston University course at a partner institution in a different location, the enrolment process is slightly different.
You will need to complete Stage 1 enrolment in the same way as students taught at a Kingston University campus (see above).
Stage 2 enrolment will take place either at a Kingston University campus and/or your place of study (see below).
If you are studying at one of the following colleges, you will need to attend in-person enrolment at Kingston University. We will send information about the date, time and location when you have completed your online enrolment.
You may also have to enrol with the college you will be based at. The college will contact you directly with more information if this is the case.
If you are studying at one of the following colleges, you will not need to complete in-person enrolment at Kingston University. However, you will need to complete enrolment with your partner college, who will email or write to you with full details about this process.
If you have any questions about Stage 1: Online enrolment or Stage 2: In-person enrolment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You should have received an email from us with your username (Kingston University ID) and password to log into our Online Student Information System (OSIS).
Log into OSIS If it's your first time you'll be prompted to change your temporary password (the one that we sent you) to a permanent one (that you'll find easier to remember). If you forget your OSIS password, you can reset your password online.
