Register in person

You need to register in person to confirm your attendance and to collect your University Card (UCard) and other documentation.

What you need to bring to register

Bring a printed copy of your Certificate of Registration. We do not accept electronic versions.

If you don't have a printed copy, you may have to queue for longer when registering in person.

Where to go to register

You need to go to your faculty office to complete registration.

Document Checks

When you register online, our system may produce a Document Checklist for you. If it does, you must attend a Document Check before you register in person.

What Document Checks involve

If you are an international student (non-EEA or Non-Swiss), you will have your passport and visa checked.

Documents to bring

  1. A printed copy of your Document Checklist.
  2. A printed copy of your Certificate of Registration.
  3. All documents listed on your Document Checklist.

You will be able to print your Checklist and your Certificate of Registration when you register online.

Where to go for Document Checks
