If you are continuing your studies into the next academic year or returning from an interruption of study, you will need to re-enrol.
On this page you will find information on:
- Re-enrolment at the start of the academic session
- Re-enrolment for students returning from interruption
- How do I re-enrol?
- How do I obtain confirmation of my re-enrolment?
- How do I obtain a UCL ID card?
- How do I register for modules?
- How do I make sure my funding continues?
- How do I pay tuition fees?
If you wish to continue your studies into the next academic session, you must re-enrol on your programme and check your details even if you have no fees to pay. We will email you to let you know when you should enrol.
The deadline for re-enrolment was 12 noon (UK time) on Friday 30 October 2020. You will need permission to re-enrol after this date by submitting a delayed re-enrolment form.
Re-enrolment for students on modular/flexible status
If you are registered as a modular flexible student, 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 research students on completing research status (CRS) status
If your CRS status starts on 28 September 2020 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 28 September 2020 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 log an enquiry via askUCL.
If you have a query or require immigration advice, you may log an enquiry via askUCL.
In order to resume your studies you will need to re-enrol on your programme. Before you can re-enrol, you must have paid the appropriate fees, or provided evidence of sponsorship to the UCL Student Fees team. If you do not intend to resume your studies following your interruption, you must contact your department/supervisor to discuss your options.
You must re-enrol within 2 weeks of your date of return. If you do not re-enrol by this date, your records will be closed and you will no longer be considered a UCL student
If you have a query related to re-enrolment, you may log an enquiry via askUCL.
You can re-enrol using the re-enrolment service available within the ‘Enrolment and Study Details’ container on Portico.
If you are unable to access Portico, please contact UCL Information Services (ISD)
If you have a query or require information related to re-enrolment, you may log an enquiry via askUCL.
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.
If you have lost your old ID card, you will need to book an appointment to collect a replacement one. You must be an enrolled student to collect a replacement ID card. Please check your status on Portico before you make a booking. If you are not enrolled when you come to your appointment, we will not be able to issue your card. When collecting your ID card, please ensure you bring your own form of ID e.g. passport, driving license or EU identity card.
I am a current student and my end date has been extended. Can I get a new ID card?
Your existing ID card should still work as usual, even if it doesn’t show your updated end date. We recommend you try out your current ID card when you return to campus. If for any reason your card doesn’t work, then yes, you are able to book an appointment to collect a replacement ID card.
You must be an enrolled student to collect a replacement ID card. Please check your status on Portico before you make a booking. If you are not enrolled when you come to your appointment, we will not be able to issue your card. When collecting your ID card, please ensure you bring your own form of ID e.g. passport, driving license or EU identity card.
Where do I collect my ID card?
The main location for ID card collection is the Andrew Huxley Building, on UCL's Bloomsbury campus.
When collecting your ID card, please ensure you bring your own form of ID e.g. passport, driving license or EU identity card.
Module registration at the start of academic session
You will only be able to register for your modules once you have completed online 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
The deadline for completing module selection is 16 October 2020. If you have any queries regarding your module selection, please contact your department.
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.
If you have a query or require information related to student financial advice including bursaries, you may log an enquiry via askUCL.
If you are self-funding*, you need to ensure at least one third of your fees are paid by the 31 October 2020. 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 total is correct”. Sponsorship letters from external organisations should be forwarded to Student Fees (email@example.com) but evidence of SFE or UCL Studentship/Scholarship funding is not required as your Portico account will soon be updated automatically. Students in receipt of funding from one of the UCL Fee Partnerships (Conacyt, Conicyt, Colfuturo, IEFFE Indonesia etc) should resubmit their sponsorship letters every year to ensure their accounts are updated promptly.
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.
