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 and 2 will need to be undertaken before you start your course, and step 3 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.

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.

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. If you are not studying on-site you may not wish to apply for a Student Card. However, if you wish to use the library’s facilities you will need a Student Card. Step 3 explains how you can collect your Student Card.

When you have completed your Registration Form and applied for your Student Card, check your student Google email to receive confirmation that you have successfully submitted both forms.

Step 3 – Travelling to the UK

Please ensure that you have all travel, immigration and qualification 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 international.office@port.ac.uk.

Step 4 – Attend a Registration event

Before you arrive in the UK, please ensure you have booked yourself a time with the University’s UKVI Student Compliance Team to register on arrival at the University. This information has been sent directly to your email account(s), providing you with dates and times to register. Please see the links below:

February Registration for Non-EEA Nationals (13:00 – 14:10)

February Registration for Non-EEA Nationals (14:15 – 14:55)    

You will not be registered onto your course until you complete the registration form, and produce the relevant documents at a booked time slot with the UKVI Student Compliance Team. Please see our ‘Important Registration and Tuition Fee Information’ leaflet at our Where can I find tuition fee policies and procedures? article.

The following are the personal identification documents you require to register with the University: 

  • Passport
  • Vignette/visa (30 day vignette where applicable)
  • Term-time address
  • If you have applied for fresh entry clearance (overseas) to continue 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:

Post Office – Portsmouth

Slindon Street

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.
