Registration and paying fees - new students

The following section contains information for new UWE Bristol students on how to register and pay fees.

There are four steps to registering as a new student at UWE Bristol:

  • Step 1: Confirming your personal details
  • Step 2: Agreeing to the University’s Terms and Conditions
  • Step 3: Arranging to pay your tuition fees
  • Step 4: Confirming your attendance in person and collecting your UWE Bristol Student ID card at a registration session

International students: To meet Home Office regulations, you must confirm your attendance in person so that your passport and visa can be checked. Please note: Registration will not be complete until you have done this.

If you are transferring to a different course at the same level and mode of attendance, please read the information for returning students.

How to register (steps 1 and 2)

All students are required to register (confirm personal details, arrange fee payment and agree to the University's Registration Terms and Conditions). Most new students will be able to register online, whilst others will be required to complete a paper registration form.

Online registration

Once you have met all the conditions of entry for your course, you will receive an email containing your login information and instructions on how to access the UWE Bristol online systems, including online registration.

You will be able to register online through the 'Registration' tab in myUWE once you have received your login information.

Guidance on how to register online and confirm your personal details is available in myUWE.

Paper registration

You will be told how to register by staff at your registration session. See your joining instructions to find out where and when this will be.

Home Office regulations require you to attend a registration session in person at the start of each academic year, in addition to completing online registration.

Please note: Registration will not be complete until you have had your passport and visa checked.

Students based at partner institutions

Your host institution may have additional local registration requirements. Arrangements for your registration session will be made by the partner institution.
