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.
