Registration

Lion headRegistration is a mandatory process that you must go through in order to become a fully-registered student at the University of Salford.

This process is repeated each year to maintain your status as a registered student.

The University offers programmes in collaboration with a number of partner institutions across the world and as such registration processes may vary. If you are unsure about registration and whether the process applies to you, please contact your home institution in the first instance.

The registration process will allow you to collect your student ID card and will fully activate your IT and Library accounts, allowing you to benefit from all of their services.  

If you’re eligible for a student loan, registering with us and receiving your ID card also ensures that you can access your financial support. Student Finance England (SFE) requires that you register at the University before they can issue any payments.  

When can I register?  

As a new student at the University of Salford, you must hold an unconditional offer before you can begin the registration process.  

Once you are holding an unconditional offer you will receive an email from the University confirming your place, and an email inviting you to register approximately 6 weeks prior to your programme commencement date. This email will contain important information about the registration process, so please be sure to read this carefully.    

How do I register?

Before starting the process you MUST:

    If you are not sure about this and would like to talk to someone about your offer, please contact our Admissions Office on 0161 295 4545.
  • Ensure you have an email inviting you to register
    Shortly after being made an offer you will receive an email from registration@salford.ac.uk containing your student ID number (i.e. @01234567) and a PIN number. If you can't find this invitation to register email, you can let us know here. Don't forget to check your spam or junk folders!

If we haven't received confirmation of your funding from Student Finance by the time you register, you will be asked to make arrangements to pay your tuition fees yourself (you can set up a payment plan) before you can fully register and start your course.
