The process by which you will be formally admitted to the University of Edinburgh is called matriculation.
Matriculation is a three-part process, including:
The majority of new students will be able to complete the registration form by post before arriving in Edinburgh.
Academic Registry, the department of the University who administers registration, will email registration forms to your student email account.
Students starting programmes in September will receive the form in mid-August.
These will only be sent to you once you have accepted an unconditional offer or have met the conditions of your conditional offer.
Once you receive the form you need to sign the back of the form before returning it to the University by post.
By signing this form you are agreeing to the University's terms and conditions and agreeing to pay your fees.
You can pay the fees on arrival or make banking arrangements to pay your fees before you arrive.
More information on registering by post is available from Academic Registry.
This includes guidance on how to complete the form and what to do if you have not received your form before travelling to Edinburgh.
