Returning students

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to Bristol for the next academic year. There are a number of tasks you need to complete, including registering online and arranging payment of your tuition fees, if appropriate.  Please read this page carefully and follow the instructions.

Online registration

As a returning student, you are required to re-register online for each year of your programme of study, even if you are due to spend all or part of the year overseas or on a placement away from Bristol.

To re-register online, log into Student Info and select the 'online registration' tab. If you have any problems, first check the online help facility. If you are still unable to resolve the problem, select the 'Contact your faculty' button. Student Info is also available via the MyBristol portal.

If you have any queries regarding your registration, please contact the relevant faculty.

The Student Info screens are available all year and you should make sure that you keep your own contact details and your emergency contact details up to date at all times. This is particularly important if you are studying away from Bristol (eg on a placement or on a year abroad).

Please make sure you re-register. If you are unable to re-register this may result in your access to University facilities and buildings being stopped. There may also be financial consequences affecting funding, scholarships, loans from the Student Loans Company, and exemption from Council Tax.

Payment of tuition fees

Once you have re-registered online, you will need to wait for the next working day before you can make a payment or set up your payment plan.

Please follow the instructions below that are appropriate to your particular circumstances:

Are you responsible for paying some or all of your fees yourself?

Please see the tuition fees pages for more information about fees and funding. Please note the due dates for payment apply to those registrering in September 2016.

If you have any queries regarding fee payment, please contact the Income Office.

Are your fees being paid for you?
