This article will explain how to re-register onto your course if you are continuing your study (whether studying on the same course or transferring course).

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

 

To continue to be a student of the University of Portsmouth you are required to re-register onto your course. This entails completing the online Registration Form, re-producing personal identification and providing a valid term time address. You will not be registered on your course until you have completed the Registration Form and provided us with these documents/details.

 

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

 

Step 1 – Completing the Registration Form

                                                                                                   

It is necessary for you to complete the Registration Form before you arrive at the start of term, or before your course start date. Your department/school will notify you of the date when you can re-register. By registering with the University of Portsmouth you will be able to access all University facilities and services.  

Using your current student Google email account details, please click here and follow the instructions to commence completion of your Registration Form. Once completed check your student Google email to receive confirmation that you have successfully submitted the form.

 

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 email servicedesk@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.

 

Step 2 – 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 international.office@port.ac.uk or visit our ‘Preparing to Travel’ web page.

   

Step 3 – 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 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 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.  

Where to take your Personal Identification (ID) and Term Time Address

 

You will receive an email from the UKVI Student Compliance team at the start of term confirming where you are required to undertake your ID check. Depending on your individual circumstances, this will either be at your faculty/department, or in Park Building.
