COVID-19 contingency.  Student Finance payments are still scheduled to be released once your course has started and upon your completion of the online enrolment process. Once the University has confirmed your registration to the Student Loans Company, you can expect to receive payment within 3 to 5 working days, depending on who you bank with. Please note, your application for Student Finance must have been approved by before the University can confirm your registration with the Student Loans Company.

Collecting your student ID card is the final step to enrolling at the University.  The multi-purpose Student ID card acts as your University identification, library card, door entry card and allows you access to University services and facilities.

Due to the current lockdown in line with government guidance, any physical elements of enrolment or ID card production and collection are suspended under further notice.
