Information for New Students

As a new student at UAL you have to go through the process below to enrol on your course.

Log in to your email

Once you have accepted your offer you will receive an email inviting you to access your UAL email account. Instructions will be sent to you before your enrolment date. Please log in to your email and change your password straight away, as you will also need these details to access the enrolment task in your student portal.

Once you have received this email, go to the IT Services page and follow the instructions provided. Note that you will be unable to register until we have notified you by email that you may do so.

Your username is your student ID number. If you are starting your first course at UAL in September 2018, you will find your Student ID in your offer letter. It will be an 8 digit number starting ‘18’, e.g. 18000001. If you started prior to 2018, your Student ID will be alphanumeric, e.g. ABC12345678.

Pre-Registration

All students are required to complete pre-registration before starting their course at UAL. New students are also required to attend an enrolment event (more details below).

You can access pre-registration by logging into your student portal using your UAL network details. This will be open for new students as of 20 August 2018. You will receive an individual email with instructions on how to complete pre-registration.

You must complete pre-registration before the date of your enrolment event. You will also agree to the enrolment terms and conditions as part of this process.

Log in to your student portal with the details below:

  1. Username: the same as your UAL network login
  2. Password: the same as your UAL network password

You must ensure you upload all required documentation as part of the pre-registration task, as this will save you time at your face-to-face enrolment event. If you do not yet have a particular document, you can still complete pre-registration and upload it at a later date through the student portal.

Having problems logging in to your student portal? Please contact the registry helpdesk team on studentsystemshelp@arts.ac.uk.
