Staff assessment of enrolment information and getting your Student ID card

What happens next?

Once you have completed the Student Virtual Enrolment Task, you will receive an email confirming your current enrolment status of Not Enrolled. 

Why is the status Not Enrolled?

We have to verify your identity from the documents you have supplied and check your ID photo is suitable for your student ID card.

‘Not enrolled’ is an important first step, as it means you now have a student record, with core modules attached for your course.

Within five working days, staff will assess the information you supplied with one of the following outcomes:

  • If the details meet the enrolment requirements, your student record status will be updated from Not Enrolled to Fully Enrolled, and you will receive notification of your Fully Enrolled status. If you are resident in the UK, your student ID card will be dispatched to your UK term-time address within 10 working days, if/ when you have confirmed your term time address with us. If relevant, your full enrolment status will be confirmed with the Student Loans Company who will then prepare the loan for release to you.
  • If the details you supplied only partly meet the enrolment requirements, or you are an overseas student who will be studying on a Student visa, your student record will be updated to Temporary Enrolled. This status will provide the same access as a Fully Enrolled student for a limited period, and your ID card will still be posted to your UK term-time address, if/when you have confirmed your address with us.  You will be sent information on what to do and by when to change your status to Fully Enrolled.  
  • If you have not met the enrolment requirements, your student record status will remain as Not Enrolled. You will not have access to your course or student funding if relevant. You will receive confirmation that we need more information from you to progress your enrolment, and what to do next. Please wait to be contacted by us. If you don’t receive an email about your enrolment status within five working days contact us at: . Include your name, course and applicant ID in your message.
