Enrolment is one of the most important parts of your journey as a student, enrolling as early as possible and ensuring you have completed all aspects of enrolment will give you a smooth start to the first few weeks of University.

Confirmation Letter

Once you have met all the conditions of your offer, our Student Administration team will send you your Confirmation Letter. This is commonly sent around a month prior to your programme start date.

The Confirmation Letter will confirm your place on the programme, provide you information on how to enrol as well as hints and tips on what to expect in the weeks to come.

The Confirmation Letter is sent to your personal email address that you applied for your programme with, therefore if you are using an agent, it may be sent to them prior.

Online Enrolment

Once you have your Confirmation Letter, you'll be able to enrol yourself online. Our Online Enrolment will give you the opportunity to confirm all of your details with us which include the details of your programme of studies, your funding as well as your personal details so we can ensure you're set up and ready to go.

The Online Enrolment process usually takes around 5-10 minutes and is a series of questions relating to yourself, your studies and funding. Once you have completed your online enrolment, you'll be provided with your new University User ID so you can access our wide range of resources. You will also get access to our handy What Next? Checklist to show you what else you need to do to get prepared for University life.

What Next? Checklist

Once you have completed your Online Enrolment, you will almost be set up to begin your studies at the University of Sunderland.

You will see you now have access to our What Next? Checklist which will give you guidance on what your next steps are once you've completed online enrolment. The checklist will give you access to upload a photograph for your campus card, access your Induction Timetable and much more.
