FAQs about registration
General Online Registration
What is Online Registration?
Online Registration is a service which allows you to register, amend your details and pay your fees all online through a series of simple screens.
I haven't completed Online Registration yet. Can I complete stage 2 (verification of identity) / finalise my registration?
No – you must complete Stage One: online registration first. Only then can you continue to Stage Two: verification of your identity, eligibility to study, and joining your course at City, when we will verify your ID and finalise your registration.
What if I don't complete registration within three weeks of the start of my course?
Failure to register within three weeks of the start of your course will lead to your IT account being suspended and may lead to your eventual de-registration from City.
I have applied for a Career Development Loan from my bank - Has it been paid to City yet?
Career Development Loan payments are only paid to City, University of London once you have registered for your course. In order to be able to complete Stage One: online registration without making a payment upfront, please forward a copy of your Career Development Loan approval letter to email@example.com. We will then process your form and let you know that you can log in and complete your registration.
