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 before the start of term, including registering online and arranging payment of your tuition fees, if appropriate.  Please read this page carefully and follow the instructions.  Your school or faculty will contact you with information about events for returning students taking place during Welcome Week from Monday 18 September to Friday 22 September.

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.

  • Students with tuition fee debt to the University on 31 July 2017 will not be able to re-register until this debt has been settled or specific arrangements have been agreed with the Credit Control Manager for the settlement of the debt.
  • Students who have been given permission to suspend their studies for the entire 2017/18 session do not need to re-register.
  • Undergraduate students taking resit examinations or supplementary assessments will not be able to re-register until their results have been deemed satisfactory by the Board of Examiners/Progress Committee and they have been given permission to progress to the next year of study.
  • Postgraduate research students at the writing-up stage of their programme and students on taught Masters programmes who have completed the taught part of their programme and are due to submit their dissertation or project in September 2017 do not need to re-register for 2017/18. Instead they will be asked later on to ensure that all their details are up-to-date on Student Info, in preparation for examination and graduation arrangements.

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 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 2017.

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