September 2022 Registration

Students are not required to register face-to-face. Instead, you can register online from the comfort of your own home.

Get started at the University of Cumbria by formally confirming your status as a student through Online Pre-registration. All students are required to complete this, alongside a Declaration of Study in order to begin receiving Student loan support and attend classes.

Registration requirements may differ for each course, with some courses requiring further confirmations of identity and fitness to study. Find out more about specific course requirements down below.

Declaration of Study

If your Applicant Portal still shows you need to provide evidence of Right to Study please ensure you have done this prior to starting your course. You should upload a copy of your Passport, UK Driving Licence, or Birth Certificate.  If you have a biometric residence card please upload a copy of the front and back of your card.  If you have pre-settled or settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme, please supply the Admissions team with your 9 digit share code.

You are required to complete a Declaration of Study before you start your course. An email will be sent to you shortly before your course begins. You will only be able to complete your Declaration of Study if you have completed Online Registration.

The University can only confirm attendance on courses for student loans and bursaries if students are fully registered and have completed all required elements.

Welcome Week Information

No two courses are the same, that's why each course has its own welcome week timetable. Meet your tutors, explore the University, and prepare for the exciting year ahead. Find out what you will be doing during your first few weeks at the University of Cumbria.

Welcome Week and Course Timetables

Please note: Separate Welcome Week timetables are usually only produced for key induction points during the year. If your course starts outside of these dates you can still access your timetable through the button (above) or from the Timetables link in the Student Hub after you have completed your IT Account activation.
