How do I know if I need to register?

It should say in your visa if you are required to register with the police. If it says you are required to register, but your nationality is not on the list above, please see one of our International Student Advisers.

If your nationality is on the list, but it is not specified in your visa, you do still need to register. Our International Student Advisers can give you guidance on this.
