Late Registration

You should do all that you can to arrive on time.  However, we know that some students may be delayed because of immigration delays or ill health. International Students should ensure that they arrive before the latest start date included in their CAS.

If you are going to arrive late, your first step to getting registered is to make contact with your academic department. Your academic department should:

  • Advise and approve any module choice (modular programmes only)
  • Provide you with lecture and seminar materials you have missed

You must attend registration at your scheduled time. The registration timetable helps us keep queues to a minimum if you attend when expected. If you fail to attend on the day you are due to register, please do not come on another day, as it may not be possible to register you then. Instead, please come to the Late Registration Event;

Monday 25th September

All new full-time students unable to register during Intro Week should come to the Sports Hall at Goodwin Sports Centre on Northumberland Road (Sport Sheffield) between 8am and 2pm (last entry 1.30pm)

Tuesday 26th to Thursday 28th September

Any students who have not yet registered by this time should come to the Discovery Rooms on Level 5 of the Students' Union Building (entry is ONLY via the central staircase near the Student Advice Centre - NO ENTRY THROUGH INOX). The Discovery Rooms will be open from 9.30am to 4.30pm each day.

Please bring:

  • Photo identification
  • Information about which modules have been approved (your module form)
  • Passport and visa (or evidence of sending a Visa Extension Application to the Home Office (non-EEA students only)
  • A method of payment for your tuition fees (and/or sponsor letter).

Once you have registered with the University, you can:

  • Collect your UCard.
  • Activate your student computer account (if you have not done so already).
  • Register with the University Health Service.
  • Register with the police (if this is an immigration requirement).

Please note that the Student Administration Service counter will be closed on Friday 29 September

Monday 2 October - Friday 13 October

Late registration for new students continues at the Student Administration Service counter, Level 6 Students' Union Building between 9.30am and 4.30pm. To ensure that we comply with University and Home Office regulations, new and continuing students must not attend classes, receive teaching materials or supervision before they have registered.

You can also familiarise yourself with the University's support services eg for international students, students facing acute problems, mature students, and students with disabilities. The Student Services Information Desk (SSiD) can provide more information on these services and can help if you have any concerns about settling in at University. Please refer to the SSiD student welfare pages for more information.
