Completing online registration

New students

You will need either your UCAS/GTTR personal ID or your BSU student ID. You don't need both of these to register online.

If you don't have a UCAS/GTTR personal ID, you'll receive email notification of your student ID to enable you to register online.

Continuing students

If you have studied at Bath Spa University previously you won't need to create an account.

You should be able to login to your existing account using your student ID number and password.

Self Service Password Reset Tool

Log in to the registration tool - for this, you'll need your student number and password.

Once you've logged in, you'll need to set the answers to the 'secret questions'. Make sure you remember the answers. This initial process is required only once.

How to change your password

Go to the University's password reset tool and provide your student number. You'll need to answer the security questions correctly. Once you've answered the security questions, type your new password (twice). That sets your password.

How to get further help

Should you run into any difficulty in logging on or have password related problems, please try using the above registration tool/password reset tools first. If this does not resolve your issue, please call the IT Helpdesk 01225 876500 or email ithelpdesk@bathspa.ac.uk.

For any other queries regarding registration and enrolment, please do read through all of the information provided first and then, if you are still concerned or are running into difficulty, you can contact Student Services via email mycourse@bathspa.ac.uk.

Student ID card

If you have not completed online registration prior to your enrolment session, don't worry. You will be able to do this on the day and we will be on hand to help you through the process. If you can, please do try to complete the ID card section (in step 2) in advance as that means we can print your student ID card for you to pick up on the day.

Remember to bring photo ID with you!

Enrolling in person

You must bring proof of identification to your enrolment session (a passport or other form of photo ID), and if you're registering to study PGCE, Foundation Degrees in Early Years, Education Studies for Teaching Assistants or Counselling, you'll also need to ensure that you have made the necessary arrangements for Disclosure Barring Service (DBS).

If you haven't completed online registration prior to your enrolment session, don't worry! You'll be able to do this on the day and we'll be on hand to help you through the process. If you can, please do try to complete the ID card section (in step 2) in advance as that means we can print your student ID card for you to pick up on the day.
