University card collection

Getting your University card


Your University card will be issued at your faculty induction session. Please see the induction programme for your course for details of times and dates of when your card will be ready for collection.

Your University card will remain valid for the duration of your studies at Plymouth University. 

If you already have a University card i.e. because you were previously a student on another course or at a Partner College you do not need to attend a card collection session. 

Your card will include your photo so please upload a photo as soon as your place has been confirmed. Failure to provide a photo will unfortunately delay the production of your University card so it is important that you upload your photo at least three working days before your card collection session.

Prior to collecting your University card please complete online enrolment. We will not be able to issue the card until online enrolment has been completed.

International students are required to visit International Student Advice (ISA) prior to completing online enrolment so that we can scan your documents.

For Peninsula School of Medicine and Dentistry students on BMBS, BDS and BSc DTH programmes you are not required to provide any form of ID when collecting your University card as this was provided at interview.
