What is enrolment?

Online Enrolment is our registration process. It's like signing-up for an online service: you confirm your personal information and check it's accurate, then you choose your options, agree to terms and conditions, and pay your registration fee. Once complete, you are registered and can begin to use the service.
When starting university, online enrolment involves you providing confirmation of the details you entered on your application form, paying your tuition fees, registering your course modules and agreeing to the terms and conditions for your course of study. Once complete, you will officially become a student of the University of East London.
Online Enrolment is a critical step – if you do not enrol you do not become a student.

Additional information for international students

If you're an international student, you may need to make a tuition fee payment or provide proof of funding or sponsorship to complete online enrolment.  Please follow the guidance provided within UEL Direct.

Completing the Right to Study Check

You will need to complete the Right to Study check which can be found in the 'My Task' section within UEL Direct. The Right to Study Check allows the university to collect copies of your passport and visa or visa application form at each step of your visa application journey.

International students are considered to be fully enrolled and  permitted to study online whilst their enrolment status is 'Enrolled Pending Right to Study'.

You will pass the Right to Study check when you have uploaded all the required documents showing:

  1. Your visa has been approved and you have arrived in the UK or
  2.  You have submitted an in-time visa application in the UK.

You can find advice personal to you on what documents you need to upload in the Right to Study Check.
