Guidance for new students about what to do at the start of your programme to become a matriculated student at the University.
Approximately 6 weeks prior to your programme start date and if you hold an unconditional firm offer, Academic Registry will send you a matriculation form as a .pdf attachment. This will be sent to your student email account. You should print the form, complete it, and then return it to Registry as soon as possible to start the matriculation process and signify your intention to take up your place at Edinburgh.
You can email the completed form back to Registry via the email address below, or you can post a paper copy to Academic Registry, University of Edinburgh, Old College, South Bridge, Edinburgh EH8 9YL.
Non-EU or non-EEA students who are resident in the UK must also provide a copy of the page(s) of your passport confirming your identity and photograph and page(s) showing the UK Entry Clearance sticker/stamp/Identity Card for Foreign Nationals.
If your tuition fees are being paid on your behalf by a sponsor please email evidence of the award on headed paper to firstname.lastname@example.org . This should include precise details of where any invoices should be sent and purchase order number (if applicable). It is essential we receive this information as early as possible to ensure your invoice for payment of tuition fees is sent to the correct location.
If resident outside the UK this is not necessary.
Further information about UKBA requirements can be found on our International Office website.
When your registration form has been received by Registry you will receive an email to confirm that your registration has been completed.
You can also see if you have been registered by checking the Programmes channel in the MyEd Student Portal.
If you hold an unconditional firm offer, and have not received your matriculation form prior to your programme start date, please email us at the address below, and we will either email you a .pdf form or explain why your form has not been issued.
To complete full Matriculation as a student of the University you must also have your attendance confirmed by support staff in the School or Department office - for Online Distance Learning students this is simply an electronic confirmation that you are “on programme”.
Please check your MyEd portal to see whether your attendance has been confirmed.
The page linked below contains a list of all Online Distance Learning programmes; contact details for each can be found on the appropriate page.
Remember to sign your form!
If you are not fully matriculated by early October you will potentially lose your access to the virtual learning environment (VLE).
Information about the VLE can be found via the link below.
Student Cards will be produced and sent to home addresses on, or just after, your programme start date.
If you do not receive a card application form prior to your start date, then please email to ask for a replacement application form.
