If you want to continue your studies into the next academic session, you must re-enrol in the autumn term.
On this page you will find information on:
- What is re-enrolment?
- How do I re-enrol?
- How do I obtain a confirmation of my re-enrolment?
- How do I register for modules?
- How do I make sure my funding continues?
- How do I get a new UCL ID cardpay tuition fees?
To continue your studies in the new academic year you must re-enrol and check your details even if you have no fees to pay.
On-line re-enrolment will open on 20 August and we will email you to remind you to do this. You must re-enrol by 26 October 2018. If you do not re-enrol by this date, your records will be closed and you will no longer be considered a UCL student.
Re-enrolment for students on modular/flexible status
If you are registered on a modular or flexible mode of study, you must re-enrol even if you do not intend to take any modules during the new academic session. This will make sure that your registration as a student is maintained so you can complete your programme in the future. Once you have been awarded your degree, we will update your status to show you have completed your studies.
Re-enrolment for postgraduate students on completing research status (CRS) status
If your CRS status starts on 24 September 2018 you do not need to re-enrol but you should still log in to Portico and check that your home, term and contact address details are up to date.
If your CRS starts after 24 September 2018 you must re-enrol and pay fees up to the start date of your CRS status.
Re-enrolment for students on a Tier 4 (general) student visa
If your existing visa does not cover the remainder of your current programme of study you will need to submit a visa extension application in advance of your visa expiry date and in doing so you will have to meet the Tier 4 visa requirements.
If you require a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK please familiarise yourself with the Tier 4 Sponsor and Student Responsibilities Guide.
For further information and advice on Tier 4 visas please contact the Student Immigration Advice team.
Login Portico and re-enrol using the re-enrolment service available within the ‘Enrolment and Study Details’ container.
If you are unable to access Portico, please contact UCL Information Services (ISD)
For further information and advice on re-enrolment please email the Student Records team
Once you have re-enrolled you will be able to print a statement from your Portico account that will serve as a general proof of your enrolment for the forthcoming academic session.
You will only be able to register for your modules once you have completed on-line re-enrolment for the new academic session.
In Portico you can:
- search for modules and view basic information about them
- save your selections and return to the module selection process at a later time
- submit your selections once you are happy with your choices
- check that your selections fit with the rules for your programme
Once selected, your modules need to be validated by the department where you are registered and, if different, the teaching department. The deadline for completing the module selection process is 12 October 2018.
The UCL online timetable shows when modules are being taught across UCL. Once you’ve registered you can also view your timetable.
UK and EU continuing students must re-apply to their regional student finance body (e.g. Student Finance England) for funding each year.
Your student loan for maintenance, grants and/or any UCL bursaries will not be processed and released into your bank account until you have paid the right amount of fees and are classified as fully registered. UCL will be notified automatically once any tuition fee loan you have applied for is approved by your student finance body. We will then confirm your registration at the start of the academic year.
For further information and advice about student financial advice including bursaries please email the Student Funding team
If you are self-funding*, you need to ensure at least one third of your fees are paid by the 31 October 2018. You can pay on-line during the online re-enrolment task or after you have enrolled. If you have fees funding from Student Finance England (SFE), an external sponsor or a UCL Studentship/Scholarship that is not showing when you re-enrol, continue by selecting option “Fees are correct but sponsorship details are incorrect/incomplete”. Sponsorship letters from external organisations should be forwarded to Student Fees (firstname.lastname@example.org) but evidence of SFE or UCL Studentship/Scholarship funding is not required as your Portico account will soon be updated automatically.
You will be enrolled on a Time Limited Enrolment (TLE) basis until any sponsorship is recorded on your Portico account and (if applicable) payment of one third of your personal fee liability has been received.
Failure to pay your fees before the end of Time Limited Enrolment may result in restricted access to UCL services/facilities and funding sources (including Student Loan Company Loans) and, ultimately, the suspension of your registration.
For further information and advice regarding your tuition fees please email the Student Fees team
*Students in receipt of a SFE Postgraduate or Doctoral (Research) loan are considered self-funding as the loan is for study costs and paid to students direct. We will ensure your enrolment status is updated to allow SFE to release your first loan instalment to be paid to you on time. You will then need to ensure one third of your UCL fees is paid by the 31 October.
