We're looking forward to welcoming you to UEA. We are here to guide you through the steps you need to take before arriving at university.
Registration and Arrivals
Around 30 days before you start your course you will receive a registration email. Please register as soon as possible.
Don’t forget to complete all parts of the online registration task so you can access your induction information, get your campus card, see your timetable, and start planning for your arrival at UEA.
If you are travelling to UEA from outside the UK, please see our Travel and Visas page for the latest information, including the International Arrivals Form which you will need to complete to let us know when you are arriving on campus.
Choose from the options below to find out how registration will work for you.
Registration and arrivals - undergraduates
- Undergraduate UK students living in UEA accommodation: you will automatically be fully registered when you collect your accommodation keys.
- Undergraduate UK students not living in UEA accommodation: you will automatically be fully registered when you complete online registration.
- Undergraduate International and EU students: you must attend an in-person registration event. Depending on the type of immigration permission that you have this may be in-person or a remote process. We will update you on this before you arrive.

Registration and arrivals - postgraduate researchers
Registration, for postgraduate researchers, will take place via an individual video meeting between you and a member of the Postgraduate Research Service. These meetings will take place from Monday 27 September onwards. You should receive an invitation email from us by Thursday 23 September containing details of your personal registration slot. 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 allow an extra 5 minutes.
The main purpose of our 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).
