As a new student, you need to complete the process of online registration and enrolment before starting your course at Imperial College.

Online registration and enrolment opens 30 days before the start date of your course.

Most courses have a start date of 3 October 2020, so for the majority of students, this will mean that online registration and enrolment will open in September.

We encourage you to register and enrol as soon as possible using the My Imperial student portal.

After your course start date, you have only 21 days to complete online registration and enrolment.

If you have any problems, please contact the service.desk@imperial.ac.uk or telephone +44 (0)20 7594 9000 with your College Identifier (CID) and a description of the problem.

COVID–19 update: To ensure we can keep our students safe we will be making a number of changes to the student enrolment process this year. Please note that we will not be running in-person registration. If you are from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) we will email you to let you know about arrangements to collect your biometric residence permit (BRP).

All students are required to complete College registration and annual programme enrolment using My Imperial before their programme start date. This video will walk you through the process and other services available in the My Imperial student portal.
