Enrolment is a mandatory process that you must complete at the beginning of the year to become a registered student of the University, activate your IT/Library account and release your finance from the Student Loans Company. The enrolment process is completed online, in two stages:

Stage one

The first stage of enrolment will open on Thursday 3 September. As part of this process you will need to provide the University with some personal information, including proof of your identity.

If your status on UCAS Track is Unconditional Firm (UF) by this date, you will receive an email to the email address you used to make your application. This email will contain everything you need in order to complete stage one including your login details.  Please allow 24 hours for this to arrive. If you do not receive the email, please check your junk folder and then contact gettingstarted@edgehill.ac.uk.

You should ensure that you have completed stage one by Friday 18 September.

As part of stage one, you are required to upload a photograph and identification. To prepare for this, please read the online guide. Please also read our Frequently Asked Questions.

After completing stage one, emails regarding enrolment will be sent to your Edge Hill email account. You will need to make sure this is set up before you complete stage two.  To access your Edge Hill email account, please visit the Student Homepage.

Please note, you will only be able to set up your email once you have received your stage one email.

Top tip: Make a note of your student number and password to save you time when enrolling.

Stage two

Once you have submitted your stage one enrolment, and the Enrolment Team have verified your photo and ID, you will be ready to complete stage two. We will send you a confirmation email with instructions to your Edge Hill email account (make sure you set this up before you arrive).

It is essential that you complete stage two to confirm your attendance on campus and release your student loan. You will need to do this when you first arrive on campus, either for your first induction session or when you move into halls.

Stage two is really simple. When you arrive on campus all you need to do is:

  • log onto the Eduroam WiFi on your mobile device (or use a networked campus PC)
  • open your confirmation email, click the link, log in using your student number and password
  • Click the button  ‘Enrol Online’. Once clicked, you will have completed the enrolment process.

To make the process as quick as possible for you on the day of your arrival, please read the instructions for stage two on the website here.

Please note that a delay in enrolling may result in you being unable to access University facilities and a delay to your first student loan payment (if applicable).
