Your Step by Step Guide to Enrolment

You are required to complete two simple steps before you arrive, using Blackboard, the University's student portal:

  • 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 leaflet in your Enrolment Pack.

Updating Your Personal Details

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

Choose Your Modules

If your course has optional modules, you can choose the ones you will study from a list on Blackboard during Step 1 of the enrolment process. If you do not have this information now, please contact your School Administrator to select your modules. You will need to confirm the modules you are studying from September for the academic year. We would ask that you do this before you come to enrol.

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 after your Introduction Talk.

Uploading Your Photo

Please follow the steps in the Getting Started leaflet enclosed in your enrolment pack. Once you have done this, you will receive email confirmation.

Important: Your photograph must be a passport style headshot photo only.

Getting Started Leaflet

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

Programme level resources are in a Getting Started School site. Your enrolment letter gives you this information.

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

For Undergraduate students:

  • Enrolment ticket
