You must register with the University - by enrolling online before you arrive, and have your ID checked when you arrive at Bangor.

You will not have access to university information and on-line teaching and learning materials until you have registered.

Student Finance will not release any funding allocated to you until you are a fully registered student so don’t forget to complete both stages of the process.
