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 with online registration and completes with in-person registration at the start of the academic year.
You can register online once you receive an email confirming your place. We'll send you your email 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.
To register at the University you need to complete an online registration task before you arrive. It’s a really good idea to do this as soon as you can 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.
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.
Step 2: Register In-Person
In-person registration takes place at the UEA Sportspark this year from Wednesday September 19 to Sunday 23 September. Please see when you can register below.
If you are arriving outside of those dates, you can complete your in-person registration at the Admissions Office (LSB 1.120). 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.
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 to choose your options and email your choices to your Hub - the email address is on the New Student Enrolment Form.
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.
