New Students

Your Essential Top 6 Tasks

Complete these essential Top 6 Tasks to become a student.

You must complete these essential Top 6 Tasks before you start and during your first week, to enable you to begin your studies with us. Each task is explained below with further information about how to complete each one. These tasks are relevant for all new students.

Before you start your essential tasks, you will need to ensure that you have access to MyEd. 

Please note, information for the Top 6 Tasks is currently being updated and will be confirmed in June 2024 for all new students starting with us in September 2024. 

Complete your matriculation

Task 1
Matriculation means completing steps that officially enrol you as a student at the University. Every student needs to complete the steps. There are also additional tasks if you are coming from outside the UK, the EU, or the EEA.

Pay your fees

Task 3
You need to plan the payment of your tuition fees and tell us how you intend to pay.

Check updates from your School

Task 2
As you approach your start date, your School/Deanery and the University will send emails initially to the email that you applied with as well as your new University email address. Make sure you read your emails so you don't miss out on key information from your School/Deanery and the University.

Apply for your University card

Task 4
You are required to have an up-to-date University student card that you should carry with you at all times and you must apply for your University card in advance of starting. 

Set up your University WiFi

Task 5
Information you need to help you set up your devices on the University WiFi, plus other information on the IT requirements for starting University.

Register with a GP/doctor

Task 6
We have provided information so you can research GP Practices and then register. We want to make sure that you look after yourself whilst studying, both physically and mentally, and that you know how to get medical assistance if you need it.
