Joining the University

Enrolment is the formal process through which you officially join the University. When you enrol, you confirm your agreement to become a student at Lincoln, to abide by University regulations, to become liable for fee payments, as well as to having your personal details checked. All students must enrol at the beginning of each year of study.

We have developed an online enrolment approach which will enable you to enrol remotely. We will be working with Student Finance England to ensure that our arrangements are compliant with their requirements for us to confirm that you are in attendance and that your student Maintenance Loan payment can be released. We will send you the details well in advance of your course start date so that you can complete your enrolment quickly.

Using the dropdowns below, select the enrolment option that applies to you.

Important Information

Your Right to Vote – Electoral Registration

Eligibile students are entitled to register to vote from both their student accommodation and their home addresses – this means that you are entitled to vote at local elections here in Lincoln in addition to local elections at home. As a resident of the city, you can have your say on how local services in Lincoln are delivered by ensuring that you are registered and participate in the City Council elections. For national elections and referendums you can only cast one vote, so you would need to choose whether you want to vote from your home residence or here in Lincoln.


You can register to vote in the UK from the age of 16, although you can only vote when you become 18. You qualify to register to vote if you are a UK citizen, a Qualifying Commonwealth citizen resident in the UK, or and an EU citizen resident in the UK. A qualifying Commonwealth citizen is someone who has leave to enter or remain in the UK, or does not require such leave. All countries currently within the Commonwealth can be found at http://thecommonwealth.org/member-countries.

To register to vote you will need to provide the following information:

  • Name, date of birth, and full address, including building or apartment number and your room number
  • Contact email and mobile number
  • National Insurance Number

You can register to vote at any time at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
