On-campus International (i.e. non-EEA) students

How to complete the registration processes for new International (i.e. non-EEA) students

To become a student at the University of Portsmouth it is necessary for you to register onto your course. Steps 1, 2 and 3 will need to be undertaken before you start your course, and step 4 and 5 either prior to or at the start of term.

If you are returning to the University after completing a course without any study break, and you have been allocated an account in the past, you do not need to complete step 1.

 

Step 1 – Get your username and password

Visit www.port.ac.uk/studentaccount to retrieve your University computer username and password.  You will be asked for your Student ID Number and date of birth.  Following the successful retrieval of your computer account you can access your student Google email, MyPort and other essential IT services.

Please note: If you have previously activated your account for early access to Moodle you will not need to complete this step.

 

Step 2 – Complete the Registration Form and apply for your Student Card

Once you have your student account details you should complete the Registration Form and apply for your Student Card.

To complete the Registration Form go to www.port.ac.uk/register and follow the instructions to commence your registration

If you receive an ‘Incorrect login credentials’ message when logging into the registration system, you are able to reset your password at www.port.ac.uk/studentaccount, or contact the Service Desk on 023 9284 7777 or emailservicedesk@port.ac.uk for assistance. If you receive an alternate error message when trying to access the registration form, please contact our Registration team directly on regform@port.ac.uk or 023 9284 7744.

When you have completed your Registration Form, check your student Google email to receive confirmation that you have successfully submitted the form

 

To apply for your Student Card go to www.port.ac.uk/studentcard to complete the application form; this will allow you to access University buildings and services and it is used for attendance monitoring. Step 3 explains how you can collect your Student Card.

 

Step 3 – Personal Identification (ID) ​and Course Entry Qualification ​check

If these have not yet been provided when applying to the University, please email scanned copies of your Personal ID and relevant qualification documentation to confirmation@port.ac.uk. If you are unsure which qualifications are required, please email confirmation@port.ac.uk for clarification.

You will not be registered onto your course, or able to obtain your Student card until you complete the Registration Form, provide personal identification and a valid term time address.

Please see our ‘Important Registration and Tuition Fee Information’ leaflet at our ‘Where can I find tuition fee policies and procedures?’ article.

 

Step 4 – Travelling to the UK

Please ensure that you have all travel and immigration documents in your hand luggage with you when you travel to the UK.

If you have any questions relating to your arrival you can email global@port.ac.uk or visit our Preparing to Travel web page.

 

Step 5 – Attend a Registration Event

As soon as you arrive in the UK, please attend a registration session at the earliest possible date bringing with you the following personal identification documents to register with the University:

  • Passport

  • Vignette/visa (30 day vignette where applicable)

  • If you have applied for fresh entry clearance (overseas) to commence your studies with the University of Portsmouth, you will be issued with a Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) on arrival to the UK. Please check your ‘Home Office Letter of Authority’ (decision letter) to identify the collection point for your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP):

If it states the Post Office, please take your passport and Home Office Letter of Authority to the Post Office in Slindon Street, Portsmouth, PO1 1AB; please collect from the Post Office before you register with the University.  Post Office opening times:  Monday – Saturday 09:00 – 17:30 (Tuesdays 09:30-17:30)

If you have applied for a visa extension in the UK, via the International Student Advisers service, your BRP will be sent directly to the team and they will contact you when it is ready to collect. If you have applied for a visa extension independently then your BRP will be sent to the address stipulated on the application form.

If you have selected the University of Portsmouth address as your collection point for the BRP, this will be issued to you at registration.

  • Provide a valid term time address

If you are a Tier 4 General Student, sponsored by the University of Portsmouth, the University will inform the Home Office of your non-arrival within 10 working days of the final date of registration and your leave in the UK will be cancelled.  

Further Information

When you arrive at Portsmouth you will be required to produce your personal identification (ID); this must be your current passport and visa. Details of these events are held below.

If you have applied for your Student Card you will be able to collect it at the point where your ID and term time address details are checked by the Student Administration Services Team.
