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. Instructions for completing online enrolment and FAQs follow the Online Enrolment tile from the Essential induction information gallery on your programme induction page which can be found at https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/student-life/new-students/induction.

Overseas students - have you visited the International Student Advisory Service in the Student Gateway to have your documents scanned?

If you are an overseas student joining Plymouth University from outside the UK/EU, or if you have been assessed as an overseas fee payer, we are required by UK Visas and Immigration to scan your passport and visa. 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 the International Student Advisory Service, Ground Floor, Roland Levinsky 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. In addition we require all first year students to undertake a Plymouth Plus module as part of your first year programme of study.

The Plymouth Plus module sits within an intensive learning period the first four weeks of the second semester, in your first year. It is designed to widen the academic offer by bringing together students from different programmes, with different outlooks and knowledge, to research and investigate a real world or discipline based problem.

If you have no optional modules you will not have to complete online module choice. Where your course includes optional modules or you are offered a choice of Plymouth Plus 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 programme induction page which can be found at https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/student-life/new-students/induction.

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 2017/18 tile on the Essential induction information gallery on your programme induction page which can be found here: https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/student-life/new-students/induction

You may need to bring your Financial Assessment papers from Student Finance England / Student Finance Wales to the Student Funding Unit staff based on the 4th Floor of the Nancy Astor Building 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.
