What happens at online registration?

Once online registration has opened and you have met all conditions of your offer and you have accepted that Unconditional offer, you will receive an automated email from City, University of London inviting you to register for the course online. Please note that you cannot register online until you have received this email as this will give you the unique user ID and password which you require to login.

Online registration is a relatively straightforward process. You will be asked to confirm course details and personal details (full name, address, date of birth, etc). You will also be prompted to pay the first instalment of your fees, if you have not already done so. You do not have to complete the online registration all at once, you can return to it later, however please ensure you do complete the online registration before the in-person verification of your identity and eligibility to study (Stage Two - Registration).

When you have successfully completed the online registration process you will receive a Registration Certificate. Please  bring it with you to the in-person verification of your identity and eligibility to study. Please note that you will not be a registered student of the University until you have completed both online and in-person registration (Stage One and Two).
