"I had lots of unconditional offers, but when I came to DMU for my audition it was literally the life I was imagining for myself. Everyone was so friendly and I just knew I was going to find a new family here. It’s been everything I hoped for and more."

A step-by-step of how to register at DMU

Below we have broken down the five steps you will take to prepare you for when your course begins. The registration team are available to help with any queries you may have. Get in touch at or on 0116 207 8775 (8am-7pm on weekdays, 10am-4pm on weekends. 


This is the first step to complete the registration for your course. It is where you will provide ID documentation and a passport style photo to be put onto your student ID. Registration will be open from Monday 21 August.


This is an online resource for you to learn all about the services the university has to offer. It also includes booking links for halls drop-off, faculty and programme welcome, including details of your on-campus induction schedule. The link for this will be sent to you after you have completed pre-registration. 


For home students this is the final stage of registration and there isn’t anything more you need to do. Once you have completed your pre-registration and it has been finalised your ID card will be issued to you by your faculty. This begins from late September, but it may take a few days to process everyone.

For international students it is an appointment-based face to face appointment where your ID is checked, you are handed your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) and given your student ID card. This begins from Monday 18 September.

Go to the International Students’ page for more information.


Each faculty and programme differs, but your induction will all include your course welcome, teaching team welcome and introduction to teaching and learning resources. It is during this period you will be given your student ID card.
