Welcome and ID check
If you are studying on campus this coming semester, you will be asked to complete an in person Welcome and ID Check session.
If you are not studying on campus or are doing a professional development course your ID will be checked remotely. Please see our New Student FAQ's for further information for Distance Learning students and CPD students
Your Welcome and ID check session
Welcome and ID Checks sessions take place on campus, we check your ID, verify the address you are living at whilst at University and also issue you with your student card.
If you are receiving a student loan the University will only confirm your registration to Student Finance/SAAS when your Welcome & ID check is completed. Once completed your registration will be confirmed within 2 working days
What you need at your ID check session
You will need a form of identification with you at the Welcome and ID Check.
The following documents are acceptable forms of ID:
- UK Drivers Licence
- UK Birth Certificate
- National ID card (For EU students with settled status)
Please note we will always use your official name for our records, as showing on your ID.
Welcome and ID checks for International students
International students should bring your passport, entry visa, BRP card (if not collecting it from the university) and your qualification documents.
