Step two: Complete online enrolment tasks
Notifying the University of your sponsor (funded students)
My tuition fees are being paid by a sponsor other than SAAS (e.g. my employer is paying my fees):
To notify the University of who is paying your fees, please complete the online sponsor form. Your sponsor will then be invoiced in due course. There will be a delay of 24 hours (or longer at the weekend) to update the supplied information and you will not be able to complete Online Enrolment until these updates have been completed.
Sponsorship by family or friends is regarded as self-funding.
If you are funded by Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS) do not complete this form as SAAS will inform us directly.
Module registration (taught courses only)
Instructions will be sent to your student email account when module registration is open for you.
If you're offered a choice of modules and you are unsure about the selections to make, contact your programme advisor, who will advise the correct module choices for the programme.
To register for your modules, log onto the student portal, click on the Module Registration link and follow the instructions.
Upload passport and visa
To comply with Home Office regulations, we are required to check that all students have the correct immigration permission to study at the University of Stirling. To do this you must upload a scanned, colour photocopy of your passport and visa once you have arrived in the UK. The upload process is accessed through the Portal.
Upload your photo
To produce your student ID card, we need you to upload your photograph. The process only takes a couple of minutes, and you will receive a notification once your image has been approved for your ID card.
An email will be sent to your student account when you're able to start matriculation.
At the start of matriculation you will be asked to confirm some information we hold about you, or enter this information if it was not supplied in your application. Following this you will be asked to confirm how your fees will be paid.
Payment of fees
You will be presented with the option of paying your tuition fees online. If we do not already hold your sponsor information you can supply this information as part of matriculation, but this will delay your enrolment by 24 hours (or longer at the weekend) and you will not be able to complete the process until these updates have been completed.
Are you a self funded student responsible for paying your tuition fees?
Withdrawal from the University after enrolment – financial implications
If you need to withdraw from your course after enrolment, you should consult the University's tuition fee policy. For any enquiry regarding fee payments or refunds please contact the Enrolment, Data and Fees Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us at the Student Hub.
If you need to start your degree from home online
If you need to start your degree from home online, please let the University know on the Student Portal after you complete the online enrolment process. Please contact your Faculty if you have any specific queries about teaching delivery on your course.
Step three: In-person ID check
Once you have completed all the online enrolment tasks, the final step you will need to complete to become fully enrolled is to attend an in-person ID check.
You need to have uploaded a photograph for your student record prior to getting your ID checked.
This is required for all new students studying a Stirling campus based course.
Step four: Receiving your student ID card
Once you have completed all the online enrolment tasks and ID check, you will be able to access your digital student ID card in the University of Stirling app.
Students currently residing in the UK who are studying at our Stirling campus will also receive a physical student ID card.
