Face-to-face enrolment

In Enrolment

In Enrolment

If you’re a new student, once you have successfully completed online enrolment, the next stage will be face-to-face enrolment.   

Face-to-face enrolment will take place virtually for most students.  You will be contacted when it’s time to complete this stage and we’ll provide instructions on how it will work.  If you have any issues or concerns, please contact us via AskSaAS@staffs.ac.uk   At your face-to-face enrolment session, we'll check to ensure that you have completed all steps in the online enrolment process, and we'll verify your identity and nationality. 

Students who are studying at a UK partner college, or via Distance Learning do not need to do face-to-face enrolment.  Your college will distribute your ID cards and make arrangements for your student finance to be activated (if applicable). Student ID Cards will be posted to your home address.  

Continuing students who have student loans do not need to attend face-to-face enrolment to have their student finance activated. As long as you have enrolled online, we will activate your finance payments in the first week of term.  

If you’ve not yet received you’re face-to-face enrolment invite there’s no need to worry. We’re sending these out in batches throughout September to make sure we can prioritise those students who need to completed enrolment first. Make sure to check your emails regularly (including your spam email folder) for your invite.

International students

Face-to-face enrolment for Tier 4 students

During International Enrolment, you will be required to present your passport and BRP (Biometric Residence Permit)/Visa (or collect your BRP from us if you have requested it is delivered to the University), as well as the certificates listed in your CAS and offer letter. You are advised to attend the International Welcome activities which will explain the responsibilities that are associated with your new visa.

Most of the sessions and activities in the international programme are designed to help you adjust to life in the UK, meet other new students and inform you of the ways in which the university can support you. Once you have completed all the required steps, you will be able to book a timeslot to finish your online enrolment and collect your student card. The time and location will be communicated to you beforehand.
