How to start Online Registration

You will receive an email containing your candidate number and instructions on how to complete Online Registration.

It also:

Your printing account is set up the first time you log into a campus computer.

You should register before you start your course.

Supplying a photograph

You must upload a picture of yourself during Online Registration. This is for your student ID card.

The picture must be:

  • a portrait headshot with only you in the photo
  • recent and a true likeness
  • in colour
  • clear, in focus and free from red-eye or shadow
  • free of reflection or glare from glasses.

You must:

  • face forward, look at the camera, with eyes open and nothing covering your face
  • not wear sunglasses
  • not wear a hat or cover your head unless for medical or religious reasons.

Try not to lose your card as you may be charged for a replacement.

Getting your student ID card

If you have received your student ID card in the post, you do not need to do anything else.

If you have not received it, find out how to collect your student ID card.

Your student ID card is also your Library card.

Paying your tuition and accommodation fees

You pay your tuition fees and accommodation fees as part of the Online Registration process. You will be guided through this by the system.

Even if you have to complete registration in-person, you should still pay your fees as part of the Online Registration process.

If you’re paying fees through a student loan, you will see this displayed on the funding page in Online Registration.

Scholarships

If you have a scholarship, this will show in the registration process. If your scholarship is not showing, email scholarships@sussex.ac.uk

International students

If you need a visa to study in the UK, you will need to complete some parts of your registration in person. You must bring your passport and any immigration documents to be copied by staff.

This is where you also pick up your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP), unless you have chosen to collect it elsewhere.

Find out where to go and when to do this by logging into your Welcome events calendar. You can also see your Welcome events calendar in the SussexMobile App

At the same time you can also pick up your student ID card, so you must bring some original documents with you.

Late registration

If you cannot complete in-person registration before the start of autumn term you must let our Admissions office know. Find out who to email if you’re arriving late
