Registration and paying fees - new students

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

Registering as a new student at UWE Bristol has four steps:

  • 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.

Please note: If you are transferring to a different course at the same level and mode of attendance, please see 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 log in 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 log in information.

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

Paper registration

Students in the categories below are not able to register online and will need to complete a paper registration form:

  • Postgraduate research students
  • Continuing Professional Development (CPD) students
  • Erasmus students (Erasmus students are also required to attend a registration session)
  • Students at Hartpury College

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.

Paying your tuition fees (step 3)

Please select the most relevant link below for information on how and when to pay your fees.

Completion of fee payment arrangements will confirm your registration.

If you want to know how much you will need to pay, please refer to our tuition fee information.

NHS funded students

If your fees are being paid by the NHS, you will not be asked for payment information at registration.

Please note: You must confirm your attendance, in person, at the start of your course in order for your NHS bursary to be released to you. Please confirm your attendance by attending the registration session scheduled in your induction programme. If you have been unable to attend registration, please visit the Glenside Information Point.

Students (Home/EU) in receipt of Student Finance

To receive funding by the start of term, you will need to apply to Student Finance by at least six weeks before the start date of your course. Applications made after this date may result in a delay to your funding.

If you have already applied for Student Finance funding and have a query relating to your application, please see our Student Finance FAQs page.

Tuition fee queries

If you still have queries on how much to pay for your studies, you can contact the University or visit any Campus Information Point.

Registration sessions (step 4)

In addition, students who have registered online must attend a registration session at the start of their course to present any outstanding paperwork, collect a UWE Student ID card and receive additional information about joining the University.

International students

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.
