Online Registration

Online Enrolment and Registration

All students (including visiting students and members of University staff studying for an award) must formally register centrally with the Student Administration section of the University.  This takes place at the start of your course and subsequently, every September, will need to confirm continued attendance. The University is required to maintain up to date information on all students, and monitor your attendance and engagement.

Complete Online Registration

You have a responsibility to ensure that you are aware of all your financial obligations and have made the necessary arrangements for payment prior to registration. Late registration and late payment charges will be applied in accordance with the University’s fee schedules in force for the academic session – see full details of fee charges and refund policies.

During the on-line enrolment and re-registration processes you will also be requested to check and complete some personal statistical data. We will send some of the information we hold about you to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). This forms your HESA record, which includes details of your ethnic group and any disabilities you have. HESA will pass your record, or parts of it, to organisations that need it to carry out their statutory functions connected with funding higher education. For further details please see the HESA Student Collection Notice.

Towards the end of your studies, we will pass your contact details to the organisation (usually a marketing company) that has been contracted to carry out the National Student Survey. That organisation will use your details only for that purpose, and will then delete them. About six months after you graduate, you will be contacted to ask you to fill in the HESA ‘Destination of Leavers from HE’ survey. We will not give your contact details to HESA. You might be included in a sample of leavers who are surveyed again a few years after they graduate. If so, we will pass your contact details to the organisation that has been contracted to carry out that survey. That organisation will use your details only for that purpose, and will then delete them. (If you do not want to take part in these surveys, please let us know).

Proof of Identity

There are two stages to complete before you are formally registered as a Bangor University Student. The first stage is the on-line enrolment process and then for stage two, you must provide the University with proof of your identity. Once these two stages have been completed successfully you will receive your Student Identity card and will be formally registered. International students will need to provide the documents listed in Section A. UK and EU students will need to provide either one document from Section B or two documents from Section C. Please note that students whose courses are not based in Bangor (e.g. distance learners and some part-time students) are requested to upload copies of the relevant documents as part of the on-line enrolment process.

  • Students who are continuing on their current course do not need to have another ID check. 
  • If you are a Bangor graduate, and you are commencing a new course, you will need to complete an ID Check.

ID checking Events 2022 – all will take place in the Main Arts Library from 10.00-16.00 from Wednesday 4th January 2023.


Acceptable documents

Information Continuing Students

All continuing students must re-register on-line every year, for administrative purposes only, and is not intended to be used for changing academic options (e.g. selecting or switching modules or courses, etc). Please see the Course Queries FAQs for guidance on academic matters. Once the results have been finalised for your previous academic year, you will be able to complete online re-registration (the link to that page will be visible to you in the progression message that you receive on MyBangor). If you have not already made arrangements to pay your tuition, or other fees, and/or have not satisfied other academic and/or administrative requirements, you will not be able to access the system and you should contact for advice.

If you need to discuss something prior to confirming your registration status, then first check our FAQ section. If you cannot find the answer you are looking for there, then please contact as soon as possible explaining your position. If you have not re-registered by the advertised deadlines (please see above), then you will be liable for a ‘late registration’ charge.

Please remember to quote your student ID number (500...) in all correspondence.

Information for New Students

All new Bangor University students (students commencing a new programme of study, including those who have graduated from Bangor and are now commencing a new programme) now enrol on-line. Your enrolment email will contain the necessary information to create your password which will then be linked to your university computer and email account. Your university email account will be used to communicate with you for all academic and administrative purposes and it is a condition of your registration that you access this account at least once a week.

If you are prepared, then it should not take long to complete. Please note that your registration at the University will not be finalised until you have completed the online process and have also provided us with proof of your identity at one of the ID checking events either before Welcome Week or during it.

Once you have completed both stages of registration, your student ID card will be available for you to collect from the ID checking event (assuming that you completed the online enrolment process and uploaded a photograph in advance of attending the ID checking event).

If you are a member of University staff you will have been allocated a separate student user account and will need to activate this account as instructed.
