We can’t wait for you to join our University of Essex family. But to become an official student here you’ll need to register first.
To protect your health and wellbeing, we’re adapting our registration process on campus. We’re just working out the details and we’ll have more information on here soon.
You can still get a head start by beginning the process online and setting up your university email account, once you receive an email from our registration team.
You will receive an email to confirm when you can set up your Essex email and IT account. You will not be able to get your account before you are contacted by the University following your receipt and acceptance of your offer and the creation of your student record.
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.
