What is the enrolment process?

Enrolment on your course is a formal requirement of joining the University. You can find more information about this on our online portal, 'MyHud'. You will receive an email giving you details of how to access MyHud.

International students

Please note the information on this page is for applicants from the United Kingdom (UK) and those with pre-settled and settled status.
All other applicants can find Enrolment Guidelines in the Enrolment section of the International Applicant Portal. We also recommend that you download our useful Pre-Departure Checklist.

Students from a country outside the UK can speak to the International Office about their application at our dedicated drop-in sessions.

Fees and finance

You will need to have a payment plan in place to pay your tuition fees before you can enrol*

Find out more information about fees and finance.


*If your tuition fees are to be paid in part or full by an employer or sponsor, the employer or sponsor should provide the University with written confirmation on letter-headed paper. The letter should include your full name and the full invoice address. Where tuition and related fees are to be paid in part only, the amount to be paid by the employer or sponsor should be clearly stated. Employers will be invoiced for the appropriate fee as soon as possible and the invoice will be payable within 28 days of the invoice date. We regret that we are unable to allow employers to pay in instalments.

Identity and eligibility to study check

Once you accept our offer of a place, you will receive an email asking you to provide us with a copy of your passport or EU national identity card, together with any relevant visa documentation where applicable. If you don't have either of these documents, you can send us a copy of your photographic driving licence and full birth certificate, together with any relevant visa documentation. If you don't have any of the above please see what alternative Acceptable forms of ID document you could provide, or email us for further advice.

Once you have formally enrolled you can:

  • Obtain your student ID card.
  • Access the University library and computing facilities. These will be available within 24 hours of enrolment including access to online course resources such as Brightspace, your virtual learning environment.
  • Request bank letters and council tax exemption certificates, if required.
