In-Person Enrolment Sessions

Most new students and all international students are required to enrol in-person as a final step in the registration process.

Please be aware that the date and time of your in-person enrolment session depends on your course and student status - find your session below.  Remember to bring photo ID.

About in-person enrolment

Am I required to attend an in-person enrolment session?

Once you've successfully completed online registration, as a final step you may be required to enrol in-person. The section below outlines who is required to attend an in-person enrolment session, and when and where it will take place.

At your in-person enrolment session, we'll check to ensure that you have completed all steps in the online registration process, and we'll verify your identity and nationality. 

What do I need to bring?

  • All students: please bring proof of identification (government-issued photo identification preferred, e.g. passport or driving licence).

  • International students: you're additionally required to provide evidence of your right to study in the UK. You'll need to bring your passport, visa/BRP, and if you're studying on a Tier 4 visa, any additional documents specified on your CAS. If you're unsure what to bring, please contact visacompliance@bathspa.ac.uk.

  • PGCE and Teacher Training students: the Admissions team or your course team will be in touch regarding any additional checks or documents that need to be in hand for your in-person enrolment session. 

  • PhD students: you're additionally required to bring original documents of your highest academic qualification to the Corsham Court reception desk.

How do I get my Bath Spa student ID card?

  • New students: if you've completed online registration well in advance of your course start date, you should be able to pick up your student ID card at your in-person enrolment session, or at your course induction session.

  • Offsite students: if you're a part-time student, distance learner, on a placement or exchange programme, or if your course is not taught at a Bath Spa campus, it is possible to get your student ID card remotely. Please email mycourse@bathspa.ac.uk for details, quoting your six-digit student ID number.

  • Returning students:  your student ID card can be used year after year. If your course end date has changed, or if your card has been lost/stolen or is damaged/faulty, a replacement ID card can be ordered from the Bath Spa AppHub
