On this page, you will be able to access everything you need to know about enrolling with us, how to do it and why it’s so important.

We recommend you complete your enrolment as soon as you receive the email with the link to our enrolment portal, so you can get involved in every aspect of student life, as soon as possible!

You might want to bookmark this page so you can jump back in whenever you need to.

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:

(Note: A small number of our courses enrol using a different platform so you may see different screens than shown in this video)

Are you a UK fee-paying student or an international fee-paying student? 

If you don't know please check your offer letter. 

UK fee-paying student

Follow these steps to enrol

  • Once you’ve accepted our offer, look out for our follow-up email about two weeks before teaching starts (check key dates above) – this one takes you to our dedicated student enrolment portal and will walk you through the enrolment process step-by-step.

    UK fee-paying students - 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 - see key dates at the top of the page. 

    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 Refectory, Priory Hall, Priory Street, Coventry
