Completing Registration

Registration is the first step of the matriculation process and is required for all new and continuing students each year, including online distance learners.

Registration confirms your acceptance of the University of Edinburgh’s regulations, and is the first step in you being formally admitted as a student to the University.

When to register as a student

Approximately 4 weeks prior to your programme start date, and if you hold an unconditional firm offer, registration will be available in the My Student Record channel in your MyEd account and this is accessed from the Accounts menu. This is the same for continuing students and the form will be available in the weeks before you are due to go into the next year of your studies.

You will receive an email to your University of Edinburgh email account to let you know when this online form is available for you to complete. You should complete registration as soon as possible to start the matriculation process and signify your intention to take up your place or to continue your studies at Edinburgh.


How to register as a student

Log in to EUCLID and you will see an invitation to register.

You will be asked to provide some basic information, including:

  • personal and emergency contact details
  • previous qualifications (for new students)
  • confirmation that you wish to accept or decline a programme place
  • confirmation that you have read and accept the University of Edinburgh’s regulations

A confirmation message will display on screen once you have completed registration.


Next matriculation steps 

Registration is the first step you need to take in order to fully matriculate. Your School will contact you for details of the next step in the process, which will include International Check-in (for new students if this applies to you), and confirming your attendance.
