How do I get my Bath Spa student ID card?

You can collect your ID card from the campus where your course is based, at the locations below. If you're on a combined course across different campuses, please pick up your ID card from Newton Park.

  • Newton Park - Vinery building (behind the Students' Union) - 9.30am-4.30pm (closed 12.30pm-1.30pm)
  • Sion Hill - Part-time PGCE students starting in February will be able to collect their ID cards at their DBS document checking session. For all other courses, please collect your ID cards from Newton Park.
  • Locksbrook reception
  • Corsham Court reception
  • Distance Learners - If you're a part-time student, distance learner, or on a placement or exchange programme, you can get your student ID card remotely. Please email for details, quoting your six-digit student ID number. If your course is not taught at a Bath Spa campus, your ID card will be sent to your partner institution for distribution.
  • Partner Institution - If you're studying at a partner institution, your ID card will be posted to your place of study and it'll be distributed to you from there.
  • Returning students: Your student ID card will be valid for the length of your studies. 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.

Enrolment arrangements

New students (not on Student route visa)

New students are currently not required to attend an in-person enrolment session due to the social distancing measures in place. 

You'll receive an email letting you know when online registration has opened for your course. Once you've completed all mandatory sections in step 2 of your online registration, please log into step 3 and upload a clear copy or photo of one of the following documents:

  • Passport (preferred)
  • Photo Driving Licence
  • Original UK Birth Certificate* or Adoption Certificate

*If your name has since changed, you'll also need to email a copy of your Marriage Certificate / 'Enrolled' Deed Poll document.

If you don’t have any of the documents listed above, please email for advice.

By emailing us a copy of your photo ID, you'll be confirming that you wish to be enrolled on your course at Bath Spa University. Please complete this step before the enrolment deadline as per your email.

Once your photo ID has been checked, you'll receive an email confirming your enrolment. If you've applied for student finance, we'll notify the Student Loans Company once your enrolment is complete.

What do I need to bring?

Please ensure that you've completed your online registration before your enrolment session. If you have any questions, help will be available on the day. Sponsored students on a Student route visa will need to present the following documents to the enrolling officer at the in-person enrolment session:

  • Passport
  • Proof of your date of arrival in the UK (boarding card, entry stamp or e-ticket)
  • Proof of your Student visa
    • Entry Clearance Vignette (visa sticker in passport) and Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) if available*- Non-EEA nationals only
    • Digital status document share code - EEA nationals only

*Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) - if your course is longer than six months and you have used the Alternative Collection Location (ACL) code for Bath Spa in your visa application, your visa will be delivered to us. Once your BRP card has arrived, you'll be contacted by the Immigration Advice Service with instructions on how to collect it. If you did not select the ACL delivery process, then you'll need to collect your BRP from the Post Office prior to your in-person enrolment session. If your BRP card has not yet been delivered, you're still required to attend your enrolment session.

Returning students

Students continuing on to the next stage of their course are required to re-enrol online. You'll be sent an email letting you know when online registration has re-opened for your course. Please ensure that you self-enrol in Step 3 of your online registration before the enrolment deadline as stated in your email.
