Registration and matriculation

Matriculation is the process by which you officially enrol at the University of Edinburgh

How to register

Matriculation is the series of steps by which you become fully enrolled as a University student. This process can begin four weeks before your programme start date. 

These four steps are:

  • Registering as a student
  • Confirming your attendance
  • Fulfilling any additional admission requirements 
  • Arranging to pay tuition fees

A step-by-step guide to completing each of these steps can be found on the University Student Systems website.
