Students studying in Trimester 1 should have completed their enrolment by the end of Week 2, Friday 15 September 2017. After this date you should contact your School to discuss possible Late Enrolment.

    • Obtain your student ID card

      Your student ID number (Banner ID) is your unique identifier at the University.  Your student ID card is important as it is swiped to register your attendance in lecture theatres, classrooms and labs, and gives you access to the Library and other University facilities.  It is required as proof of identity and valid student status for entry to examination halls, etc.

      New full- and part-time students (except Distance Learning) must collect their student ID card in person from the Hub or Student Link, providing photographic identity such as passport or driving licence.  Confirmation of your ID and uplift of your student card verifies your enrolment and makes you a fully enrolled student of the University. Once your enrolment has been verified confirmation of your enrolment can be sent to external funding providers such as Students Award Agency for Scotland (SAAS), Student Loans Company (SLC) etc.

      You are requested to upload a photograph during Online Enrolment, but if this was not done you should email a photo to hub@uws.ac.uk from your student email, and quoting your Banner ID.

      During the period 4-15 September, you can verify your enrolment and collect your card, or have a photograph taken by staff, at various locations: Student Card Pick-Up Arrangements.  From 18 September, please go to the Student Link on your campus (The Hub at Paisley).

      ID cards will be posted out to Distance Learning students. 

      NB Distance Learning students are not required to uplift their ID Cards in person.

      If you are a continuing student you will already have a Student ID card which lasts for the duration of your programme. 

      Please remember to bring your ID card to classrooms and labs as this is used to register your attendance; also remember to bring your ID card to exams.

      If your card has expired or you have changed programme, or there is any other change, we will produce a replacement card for you. Email your request to hub@uws.ac.uk advising of the change required, or use the Student ID Card Request Form.  Your photo image will be on record, so you won't need to provide a new photo.

    • Check if you are enrolled
      If you are unsure if you have enrolled fully, you can check in Self Service Banner. If you are already enrolled you will receive an enrolment certificate as proof of your enrolment, and can obtain a summary of your modules.  Note that access to your modules on Moodle does not guarantee that you are enrolled as a student, so you are advised to check in Banner if you are unsure.
