Welcome Week International Students

International Enrolment

When you arrive at the University, one of your priorities will be to enrol onto your programme of study.

International Student Enrolment

Your start date is Monday 25th September 2017.

Your start date is the same as the one mentioned within your CAS statement.

 

BEFORE YOU ARRIVE - You are required to complete two simple steps before you arrive at the University to formally enrol.

  • Check and amend your Personal Details
  • Upload a photo for your ID card.

Step 1 - Getting Started and Your Personal Details

All new students accessing Blackboard for the first time need to change their default password to one of their choice. Information on how to do this can be found in the Getting Started Guide 2017 (PDF).

Updating Your Personal Details

Once you have accessed Blackboard, you need to click on the ‘Personal Details’ section on your blackboard homepage.

You need to check and amend the details we currently hold on our system for you. You must then read the Privacy Notice, confirm you have done this and submit your details as directed.

Once you have done this, you will receive an email confirmation.

Step 2 – Photo ID

You are required to upload a photo so that we can produce your ID card in advance, ready for you to collect when you formally enrol.

 

Uploading Your Photo

Please follow the steps in the Getting Started Guide 2017 (PDF) to upload your photo

IMPORTANT: PLEASE ENSURE YOU UPLOAD A PHOTO IN THE SAME STYLE AS YOUR PASSPORT.

Once you have done this, you will receive an email confirmation.

Getting Started on Blackboard

After completing Steps One and Two above, you will be able to access the Getting Started generic and programme level resources.

Your password is the same one you used to access your Blackboard homepage when you checked your personal details.

 

Tuition Fees

If your fees status is classed as Overseas you will be asked to pay a deposit of £2000 upon acceptance of your offer. Prior to or upon enrolment you will be required to pay 50% of the tuition fee due, less any deposit or further tuition fees monies already paid and/or discount you are entitled to.  You will not be allowed to enrol unless you can pay 50% of the amount owing prior to or upon enrolment.

For example, if your tuition fee due is £13648 you will be required to pay £6824 in order to enrol. Taking into account the £2000 deposit you will have already paid, a payment of £4824 will be due prior to or upon enrolment.

The remaining 50% balance needs to be paid in full within 21 days of your enrolment date unless you set up a recurring card payment plan, in which case the amount can be paid across a maximum of 9 monthly instalments commencing in the month of enrolment.

 

Paying your tuition fees.

If your fees status is classed as Overseas you will be asked to pay your fees in three stages:

Stage 1 - £2,000 deposit to be paid on receipt of a conditional offer. Applies to students who require a CAS and are not progressing from the International Study Group or PEASS courses. Sponsorship letters* will be accepted providing that the correct letter structure is adhered to.

Stage 2 - 50% of the fees to be paid ON or BEFORE enrolment.

Stage 3 - the remaining balance to be paid in full or via a maximum of 9 consecutive monthly instalments commencing in the month you enrol. Either of these options needs to be completed within 21 days of enrolment. If this is not actioned then your study progression with the University may be affected as per the University General Regulations 

Please refer to any correspondence you may have received in relation to Tuition Fees for the amount you will be expected to pay.

 Example of how to calculate your payment;

If your tuition fee due is £13,648 you will be required to pay £6,824 in order to enrol (Stage 2). If you have paid a £2000 deposit (Stage 1) a payment of £4,824 will be required for Stage 2 and a payment of £6,824 will be required for Stage 3. Please note tuition fees due is the total amount of fees payable after any applicable scholarships have been deducted.
