The Best Thing About UEA
We asked current UEA students to tell us why they chose us, and their favourite thing about studying here
Step 1: Register Online
Registration is a two stage process that starts online and completes with in-person registration at the start of the academic year.
You can complete the online registration part once you receive your email inviting you to do so. We'll send this to you up to 4 weeks before your course starts.
The email will include instructions for online registration as well as how to set up your IT account and passwords.
Online registration is easy, you’ll just confirm your personal details and the course you’re taking, and answer some finance questions. You’ll also set up your IT password, read and agree to the University regulations and upload a photo for your campus card. If you're an online-only or distance learning student you don't have to upload a photo as you won't need a campus card.
You must complete the online registration task before trying to register in-person. It’s also a really good idea to do this quickly as it will enable you to access further information about the university and to prepare for your time here at UEA. You’ll then do the second part of your registration in person once you arrive on campus.
Step 2: Register In-Person
In-person registration takes place at the UEA Sportspark this year from Wednesday 19 September to Sunday 23 September. Please see when you can register below.
International / EU or Visiting students
You should arrive on 19 or 20 September to fully benefit from the range of orientation activities that will help you settle into life at UEA. Where you can't make these dates, you may attend the later registration events as listed:
10:00-19:00 - Wednesday 19 September
10:00-19:00 - Thursday 20 September
10:00-15:00 - Friday 21 September
10:00-15:30 - Saturday 22 September
10:00-15:30 - Sunday 23 September
You should arrive on Friday 21 September, but if this isn't possible you may attend one of the other registration events listed above.
If you have to arrive outside of these dates, you should complete your in-person registration as follows:
- International / EU students please go to the Admissions Office (LSB 1.120).
- UK students should go to your Learning & Teaching Hub.
If you arrive out of working hours and need access to your accommodation, please go to the Security Lodge.
Registration events may be time slotted as part of an induction programme but otherwise students may come at any time on their allotted days.
Don't forget to note down your username and password as you might need to log in if you have any IT related queries.
More information on documents you need for registration.
Some people wait until the day before they arrive at UEA to complete their online registration – not ideal! There are some excellent reasons to follow the link from your confirmation email as soon as you get it…
Get an email account
Your UEA email account is set up as part of your online registration. You won’t need to access the emails until you arrive though. Before then, we will send any important information to the email address you gave us when you applied.
Choose optional modules
For some courses, students need to select option modules. Check your School induction page to see whether this is the case for your course.
Follow the instructions here to choose your options
For help choosing modules talk to your Course Director or someone in your Learning and Teaching Service Hub. You can find out how to contact your Hub here
Access your online student record
Once you’ve completed your online registration, you can access e:Vision. This is where you can see your student record and other information, like your personal timetable. This is a great time to subscribe to have your timetable set up on your smartphone or tablet calendar. But don’t worry if your timetable doesn’t appear yet. This will be available once we’re closer to the start of the semester. Login to e:Vision using your new UEA username and password at: https://sso.uea.ac.uk/evision
Pay your fees
Paying your tuition fees directly
If you are paying fees yourself, or someone is paying them for you, you need to complete the tuition fee section of the online registration. You can choose to pay by Direct Debit or in full. If you’re paying the fees all at once, you have 28 days from the date of the invoice to make your payment. You can also choose to pay in three instalments. You will get a letter telling you the dates for these payments.
Paying tuition fees with a student loan
If you’re paying by student loan, your fees come directly to the University via the Student Loans Company - you don’t need to complete extra sections on the online registration form.
Join the Students' Union
Once you’ve completed your online registration and got your UEA IT account, you can register with the Students’ Union. That means you can find out about all the events going on in your first week. You can also get details of clubs and societies and get to tickets for welcome week events.
