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 Coventry University student life!

A completed enrolment is the gateway to your student life – here’s how you do it:

Follow these steps to enrol

  • Look out for an enrolment email, issued from 15 April 2024. This takes you to our dedicated student enrolment portal and will walk you through the enrolment process step-by-step. The email will be sent to the email address you have used on your application. If you have changed your email address since applying, please ensure this is updated with Admissions.

    If you are accessing a loan via the Student Loans Company, please confirm if prompted. If you are self-funding, please select this option when prompted. You can also find tuition instalment dates and how to pay on this page.

    If you are an international student paying UK fees, i.e. you do not hold a British or Irish passport, you will be required to complete a Right to Study (RTS) check. You will need to do this in person with the International Student Compliance team in the Student Centre, 9am-3.30pm, Monday-Friday.

    You’ll be then given your student account and you’ll also have the chance to get to know the tools we have in place to help you get to know your way around campus and explore our online learning environment.

  • 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.

    After you’ve completed your enrolment, you can collect your student ID in person.

    Please visit: The Student Centre, Gulson Rd, Coventry, and The Refectory, Priory Hall, Priory Street, Coventry
    Dates and times: Week commencing on Monday 15 April through to Monday 22 April 2024 (The Student Centre). Week commencing on Monday 22 April to Thursday 30 May 2024 (The Refectory). Excluding weekends, 9am to 4pm.

    All students must provide proof of identity and nationality to get a student ID card.

    To verify your identity, you will need to bring the documentation listed in our accepted proof of identity and nationality document.

    Online only or distance students: you will not need a student ID card unless you want to access campus facilities and services.

  • There may be times when you need to prove your status as a student, e.g. opening a bank account - you can generate a student status letter by logging into the Student Portal or via the Wayfinder app.

  • All the latest information about your course enrolment, our facilities and services will be on our website, so keep checking back in to stay up to date before you arrive and when you get here.
