On arrival at DMU

Your Registration Event

You will be invited to attend a Registration Event specific to your course or student status. At this event you will become an officially registered DMU student!

Home/UK/EU students: You will be invited to your faculty at a specific time. If you are not sure when to come, please contact your faculty. You'll be asked to show some ID (usually a driving licence or passport) and present your Student Loans Company documentation (university/college payment advice letter).

International students: You will be invited to the International Registration event on Sunday 19 January. You'll need to present your passport and necessary visa documentation and make a tuition fee payment where needed. 

Some students, for example, those studying by distance learning, will not be required to attend the in-person registration event. Your faculty will send you details of any induction and registration-related actions.


Student finance and tuition fees

Home/UK/EU students: You should bring your Student Loans Company documentation to your faculty event, so your student funding is released to you promptly.

International students: International students: You should make any outstanding fee payments at the International Registration Event(s). International students are reminded they are required to pay 50% of their fees in order to finalise their registration, this payment can be made during the registration period, but we recommend you make this payment before arriving in the UK.

What happens during my in-person induction?

It’s very important to attend all of the sessions scheduled for induction. You will be introduced to your programme of study and meet people who will play a significant role in your studies from within your faculty, such as the programme leader and personal tutor. You will also be introduced to centrally-based university resources and departments that are there to support your studies, such as the Student GatewayKimberlin LibraryIT Support and ClaSS

The induction week schedule will be emailed to you shortly.

When you arrive and have been given your student username and password you might want to start familiarising yourself with the university’s IT systems, they can provide support throughout your time at DMU. 

Is there a map to help me find my way around the campus?

Before you arrive you can get to know your surroundings by looking at our virtual campus map here, which has information about all the main university buildings, facilities and halls of residence.

Where can I get something to eat or drink?
