We can’t wait for you to join our University of Essex family. Have you received your registration email yet?
Online Registration for the 2022-2023 academic year is currently open.
Once your student record is ready, you’ll be contacted on your personal email to ask you to set up your new Essex IT account using our Get Account system. You can then use your IT account to register with us online.
Once you have accepted your place to study with us and your student record has been created, you will receive an email with information about how to register. As part of this, you will be invited to complete Online Registration. This process will include making payment of fees (where required). You should be aware that you are not considered to be registered for your course until your fees have been paid.
You must complete registration before you attend teaching events, undertake examinations or submit any assessed work. You should familiarise yourself with the latest Registration dates section on this page, to ensure you are aware of the latest date you will be allowed to join your course, as registrations after this date may not be permitted.
As a new student joining us in January 2023, once you have completed Online Registration you will need to complete an in-person Right to Study check on campus. You can find out further information on where you need to go to complete the check under the Registration Hub section of this page.
During the Right to Study check we will check your ID documents and any immigration documents, to confirm you have the correct permissions to study with us. Where possible, once the check is completed, we’ll also issue you your Student Registration Card, so you can begin recording your attendance at teaching events.
It is essential that you complete your Right to Study check
It is important that you register for your course at the earliest opportunity, so you are registered and can attend your classes. To ensure that you are registered and able to attend at the earliest opportunity, it is essential that you complete Online Registration and make payment of the required tuition fees before the term starts.
You should not attend teaching, examinations or submit work until your registration is complete and you have paid all required tuition fees.
To minimise any potential disruption to your academic studies, we have worked with departments to establish latest registration dates. These are the latest dates departments will accept students registering for their courses. If you do not complete Online Registration, including payment of all required tuition fees by your department’s latest registration date, you will not be allowed to register.

Please note the Regulations relating to Registration, which state:
“5.10 No prospective or continuing student will be permitted to access lectures, classes or laboratories or to use the University Library, computing or any other facilities of the University until they have registered and paid or made satisfactory arrangements to pay the fees due.”
We are currently working on arrangements for our Registration Hubs at Colchester and Southend Campus for January 2023. We will publish information here and email you with further information on when and where you can attend these, as soon as these plans are finalised. In the meantime, if you have completed Online Registration and are on campus, you can attend one of our Student Services Hubs to complete your Right to Study check and collect your Student Registration Card. Details of the locations of our Student Services Hubs and how to access these can be found below:
