We can't wait for you to join our University of Essex family. But, to become an official student, you'll need to register first.
Once you’ve received an email from the Registration team, you'll be able to set up your Essex email and IT account. This usually happens shortly after your application has been processed and you have been accepted.
Every new student must complete their student registration. It’s how we know you are ready to start your course.
When you register, you become an official member of our Community and get full access to our facilities and services.
You will be contacted by the Registration Office via email when you need to register. You will be sent your registration and student information forms, which you will need to complete and return by email. You will also be asked to email a scan or photograph of your ID, so we can verify that you are definitely you. Check out our guidance on accepted forms of ID at registration below.
Once you have completed your registration in full, you will then be able to access the systems you will need for your studies. Your department will be in touch with details on how to start your course.
If you have missed teaching, you should speak with your Personal Tutor, or a member of staff in your department, about catching up on missed work, and how they can support you further.
If you need any further help and advice, please contact or visit the Student Services Hub who will be happy to assist you.
