What is enrolment and why it's important
Completing your enrolment opens the door to your student life: your student identity, funding, course information, learning and support resources, student entitlements, discounts and more.
In fact, without completing your enrolment, you simply won’t be able to access everything you need to study, work and live your best CU Scarborough student life!
A completed enrolment is the gateway to your student life – here’s how you do it:

No student ID? No student loan, no access to your accommodation, facilities and services, no important news and updates, no discounts, no fun - it’s that simple.

Welcome back to CU Scarborough, you’ll need to re-enrol with us before starting the next year of your course.

Home students applying for a student loan must do so every year. You can find all the details on the UK Government website.
International full-time students must pay £8,000 to re-enrol.
International part-time students must pay your course fees in full. You can check the cost on our Returner Fees portal.
If your fees are being paid by a sponsor (eg an employer or government body) you will need to send your sponsor letter for approval to email@example.com. We require a new sponsor letter each academic year. Please note, family and friends are not classed as sponsors.
If you haven’t paid your tuition fees in full, please ensure you make payments by the tuition instalment deadlines.
