Registration, for postgraduate researchers, will take place via an individual meeting or call between you and a member of the Postgraduate Research Service. You should receive an invitation email from us at least a week before your start date containing details of your personal registration slot.
We will either arrange for this to be in person during another event you are required to attend, or we will call you through Microsoft Teams and use your UEA email address for the call, so you will need to log into the correct account in good time before the call. We will do everything we can to make sure we call promptly but please be available for at least an additional five minutes beyond the end of your slot in case we are slightly delayed.
The main purpose of this meeting or call is to complete your registration. If you have simple questions we can answer quickly we will. However, if answering your question will take time we will organise a follow-up call so that we have enough time to give you a full answer.
Further information is available on MyUEA (login required).
The following information is relevant for all new visiting/exchange students starting in the upcoming semester.
Arrival and registration date is 24 January, with courses starting 30 January 2023. Our Global Programmes and Study Abroad Team will be in touch with you regarding wider arrival and welcome.

What we do
Student Information Advisers help students with Learning, Student Services and Finance enquiries. We provide an initial response to questions and work out next steps.
Our Advisers can also show you how to find the information you need online and can make a referral to the right Service if that’s required.
Visit us on The Street (opposite The Union Bar): Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm.
Student Information Zone (SIZ) Online can be accessed 24/7 at siz.uea.ac.uk.
SIZ Online finds what you need quickly and with ease. Type in a keyword related to your question and SIZ will find the answer.
To gain full functionality, you need a UEA username and password which you will receive once you have registered as a student.
If you are pre-registration, feel free to use the service but you will have access to a limited number of links. These are marked as “no login required”.
You can also email email@example.com with your question.
International and EU/EEA students: passport and visa checks
As part of the registration process, all students who are not British Citizens are required to complete a right to study check (looking at passport and any immigration documentation) irrespective of their fee status. Once the student has completed online registration they will be contacted by staff from the Student Visa Compliance team to guide you through the process once you have arrived.
The Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) collection will be integrated with the right to study check. The Home Office no longer require you to register with the police.
The right to study checks will take place at the registration events on the dates listed above. These will all happen in the Student Information Zone between 10.00 and 16.00. what3words///laptop.moth.sample
You are not able to undertake study until you have fully registered. You will receive a confirmation email when you are fully registered and able to commence studies.
If you have any questions about support for international students you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
International students with Dependants
The student can collect BRP cards for dependents, only once you are fully registered. The dependants do not need to physically attend but the dependants do need to be in the UK. The student must have their dependants’ passports with them to collect their BRPs.
