New students guide

We look forward to welcoming you to the Royal Agricultural University where a new and exciting chapter of your life is about to begin.

We understand that you may have many questions about arriving here and these pages should hopefully go some way to providing answers. Please spend time in particular reading the Registration Information – completing your online self-registration before you arrive is vital to ensure there are no delays to receiving your student ID, moving into accommodation and starting your studies. Your first few days with us should be all about enjoying settling in here, not queuing and waiting to join in.

Registration information

If you haven’t already done so, please log into the Student Portal and complete all the steps to self-register before arriving, especially:

  • Check and update all your details to enrol
  • Upload a valid form of photographic ID
  • Upload a passport style photo for your student ID card
  • Pay / confirm funding for your tuition and accommodation

Checking your ID and preparing your student ID card are manual processes. Please keep in mind at this time of year it can take a few days to go through any last-minute submissions, so upload your details as soon as possible.
