Ten steps of registration

Registration opens on the first day of the month you are due to register.

Follow our step-by-step guide to completing registration online. You must complete steps one to nine before paying your tuition fees (step ten). 

Follow this link to complete your registration online. You'll need your University username and password, which you were given when you activated your IT account.

For the best results, use a PC or laptop, and if you encounter difficulties try using a different browser. 

Step one: name and personal details

Check that your name is spelled correctly as this is how it will appear on all University documentation, including your degree certificate.

If your name is incorrect, please contact your School office or Student Support Hub. You'll need to provide an official document which shows your correct name (usually a passport) for the change to be agreed.

If you have a disability, or you've been diagnosed with a mental health condition, you're strongly encouraged to let us know as we offer a range of services that can help support your studies. Alternatively, contact our Disability Advisory and Support Service to discuss the support available.

If you’re joining the University as a care experienced or estranged student, be sure to tick the box to indicate this.

Should you have any questions for the named contacts for care experienced and estranged students, please email studentsupport@manchester.ac.uk.

Step two: address details

You must enter both your 'permanent home' and 'term-time' addresses during registration. Your term-time address is where you will live while you are studying. It can be updated by you at any time if it changes.

You can specify a preferred 'mail' address, which we'll use if we need to write to you.

Step three: bursary options (UK undergraduates only)

Bursaries are available for some UK undergraduate students, so you should see this option in your registration form. You must confirm that you have read the terms and conditions of the Manchester Bursary scheme. This is not confirmation that you are eligible for a bursary.

PGCE students won't see this step as it doesn't relate to any Training and Development Agency for Schools (TDA) Bursaries you may be eligible to receive. If you aren't in receipt of a TDA Bursary, you'll automatically be assessed for the Manchester Bursary without completing this step.

Step four: phone numbers

Please provide any mobile and landline numbers we can use to contact you.

Step five: email addresses

You will automatically be given an email address that ends '@student.manchester.ac.uk' or '@postgrad.manchester.ac.uk'. This is the address we'll use to email you.  

To access your email address:

  • Visit the IT Account Manager website
  • Log in via 'Sign In to IT Account Manager' section
  • Select the 'Account' tab and your email address will feature

Step six: emergency contact details

You must provide details of an emergency contact. This information is needed in case you're involved in a serious incident or an emergency situation where we consider your health, wellbeing or welfare to be at risk.

We hold the information on the University’s student record system, in accordance with the University’s Registered Students Privacy Notice and current UK data protection legislation. 

Step seven: other information (including qualifications)

You will need to indicate the highest qualification you have gained (such as A-levels or previous undergraduate degree) prior to your starting at the University. A drop-down box is provided for you to select the relevant award.

Step eight: programme details

Check that the details regarding your chosen programme are correct.

Please contact your School or Faculty if your programme details are incorrect.

Step nine: declaration and data protection to complete academic registration

It's very important that you read and understand the Declaration Statement and tick the box at the end to confirm that you agree to abide by the University's statutes, ordinances, regulations and by-laws, including those which relate to academic malpractice. 

You should read the Data Protection Statement carefully so that you're fully aware of what we'll do with your personal information, and your rights in connection with the Data Protection Act. 

Once you've completed this step, you will be academically registered.

For more information, go to our Data Protection website where you'll also have access to the privacy notice that relates to registered students of the University.

If you have any concerns about data protection, you can email our Records Management Office

Step ten: paying your tuition fees; financial registration final step to being fully registered

To pay your fees, please submit your query by completing the Student Services Enquiry form.

If your account does not appear, or for any financial queries, you can let us know by submitting the Student Services Enquiry form.

Once you have completed this final step, you'll be fully registered for the year.
