Enrolment


Enrolment begins your life as part of the UCL community. When you arrive at UCL you need to enrol in person on your programme of study, pay your tuition fees (if you have not already done so), and get your UCL student identity card.

Enrolling on your programme

You will be required to use our online pre-enrolment service for new students to confirm that the personal and contact information we have for you is correct. After completing the pre-enrolment task you will receive an email confirming the date and time of your in-person enrolment appointment. You are required to enrol at the date and time allocated to you.

Online pre-enrolment will open nearer the start of term. You will be invited to pre-enrol only if you have firmly accepted an unconditional offer to join UCL in September 2015.

What documentation should I bring to enrolment?

The documentation you are required to show will depend on your visa status and the programme you are studying. Your documents will be scanned at the Enrolment Centre as part of the enrolment process.

Non-Tier 4 students

  • Students from the EEA and Switzerland:

    • Your passport, European National Identity Card or a photo driving license
    • An ATAS certificate if applicable
  • Students on Short-term Study visa:

    • Your passport and entry clearance stamp or sticker
    • An ATAS certificate if applicable
  • students on other visa types:

    • your passport and entry clearance sticker or BRP
    • An ATAS certificate if applicable

Tier 4 visa students

If you are a Tier 4 visa holder with entry clearance you will need to have collected your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) before you can enrol. For further information about this please see our visa & immigration guidance.

UCL are a Tier 4 licence holder and are required by compliance regulations to see and retain evidence of documentation of Tier 4 student visa holders.

We will require you to provide the following documents:

  • your passport
  • A valid Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) – to be valid your BRP should have UCL’s sponsor licence number on it - X3W1RGWT9, been issued for study on the programme you are enrolling on and cover the full duration of your course
  • An ATAS certificate if applicable

Tier 4 students who do not have a valid BRP

New students with temporary 30 day visa in their passport issued for study at UCL:

  • You will not be able to enrol with this visa. You must collect your BRP before you are able to enrol

New students with a Tier 4 visa issued for study at another university:

  • You will not be able to enrol with this visa. Tier 4 visas are only valid for study at the Tier 4 licence holder listed on the visa and the programme of study listed on the CAS.
  • You will be able to enrol if you are able to show proof that you have submitted a Tier 4 extension application to study at UCL. In addition you will also need to show a copy of your passport and current Tier 4 visa

A continuing student at UCL with a Tier 4 visa issued for study on a course you have recently completed:

  • You will not be able to enrol with this visa as it is not valid for your new course of study
  • You will be able to enrol if you are able to show proof that you have submitted a Tier 4 extension application to study at UCL for your new course. In addition you will also need to show a copy of your passport and current Tier 4 visa


Extending your current Tier 4 visa

If you hold a Tier 4 visa that is not valid for study at UCL or on your new programme of study and need to make an extension application, please see our visa guidance on how to do this.

For further advice and guidance please contact UCLU Rights & Advice team.

Pending applications

If you enrol while your application for a Tier 4 visa at UCL is pending with UKVI, you do so at your own risk. If you are refused a visa, we would not be able to sponsor you and you will be required to leave the programme and the UK.

If you are successful with your application, it is important that you take your passport and visa to the Student Centre as soon as possible for scanning.
