Are you ready for Induction Week?

Have you completed online enrolment?

If you have not yet enrolled online you can do so at home or in the Charles Seale-Hayne Library where there will be Library and IT Enquiries staff available to help you. 

For instructions for completing online enrolment and FAQs follow the online enrolment tile from the 'essential induction information' gallery on your course induction page which can be found at

International students and students who are nationals of a non-EEA country – have you visited the International Student Advisory Service to have your documents scanned?

If you are a student joining the University of Plymouth from outside the EEA, we are required by UK Visas and Immigration to scan your passport and visa (if applicable). You must complete this scanning to be able to complete online enrolment and to collect your University card. Please bring your passport, visa and offer letter to International Student Advice, Ground Floor, Nancy Astor Building.

Have you completed online module choice?

Depending on the requirements of your subject, you may be asked to choose optional modules at the start of your course.

If you have no optional modules you will not have to complete online module choice. Where your course includes optional modules you will need to complete online module choice.
For further information and to access the system, follow the online module choice tile from the 'essential induction information' gallery on your course induction page which can be found at

Have you received a confirmation email that the Student Loans Company has been notified you have completed enrolment?

If you are a Home student and have applied for a student loan we need to inform the Student Loans Company (SLC) that you have completed enrolment and are in attendance before they release the autumn term loan to your bank account via the BACS payment system.

Where possible the process of confirming your enrolment to the SLC is completed automatically as part of online enrolment and you will receive an email confirming whether or not this was successful. If unsuccessful there are a number of options to manually activate your student loan which are explained further in the Student loans 2019/20 tile on the 'essential induction information' gallery on your course induction page which can be found at

You may need to bring your Financial Assessment papers from Student Finance England/Student Finance Wales to the Student Hub in the Charles Seale-Hayne Library so that we can enter the details onto the SLC database. The barcode on the top left of the assessment sheet is the one we will scan. If you do not have your paperwork, you must bring your student support number with you as we can still activate your funds from this.
