Enrolment and re-enrolment

You must enrol for the course for which you intend to study in order to become a student of Bucks New University.

At the start of every subsequent year or academic session you will also need to re-enrol. All students registering and re-enrolling on Bucks courses for the academic year 2020/21 will enrol Online via 'Bucks Connect', the student portal.

Online enrolment will open in August and you will receive an email with full instructions on how to enrol.

Please note: If you have a conditional offer, you will only be sent the instructions once your results have been received and your place has been confirmed.

Pre-arrival information

We’ve put together a useful checklist of things to help you prepare for your initial arrival at Bucks.

  • You'll need to ensure you've applied for any relevant financial support, for example Student Finance, or made provision for funding your studies privately. Visit our fees and funding section for more information
  • We will be requesting a passport-sized photograph from you which will be used on your student ID card. We'll let you know how to send this to us when we send your joining instructions
  • If you're planning to live away from home, it's also important that you make arrangements for accommodation; either via our Accommodation Service or other private providers.

If you have any questions regarding your enrolment, or the payment of your tuition fees, please contact the Student Centre on 01494 603 020 or email student.centre@bucks.ac.uk.

Depending on the course for which you are applying you may need to undergo further health and safety checks, particularly for nursing, policing and social work courses.

Applicants for these courses may be required to complete a Health Questionnaire to confirm that they are in good health. If your programme involves working with vulnerable groups, including children, you may also be required to apply for a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) identity check (previously called a Criminal Records Bureau [CRB] check).

Specific details and forms will be sent to you to complete. You may also be asked to bring further documentation with you to your enrolment session.

As a new student you will be provided with a Student ID card for the duration of your course. Although we can produce your ID card at the point of enrolment, to speed up the process and to avoid lengthy queue times we recommend that you send in a photograph of yourself beforehand.

You can email us a photo of yourself (JPEG Format) to the following address: student.centre@bucks.ac.uk. Please list the subject line as “Student ID Card” and in the email please provide the following information:

  • Your Student ID (you will find this in our communication to you from our Admissions Department)
  • Your full name (include all forenames and surname)
  • Your date of birth
  • The name of the course you will be starting

Student ID card collection for new students is currently being reviewed and we will be updating this content in line with Government Guidance on Covid-19.

You will need to present your student ID card for admission to your exam.

If you have lost your ID card, it can be replaced at the Main Gateway reception for a cost of £10. Replacement lanyards and card holders can also be purchased from the Student Centre for £1 and replacement badge reels for 50p. Note: It is not possible to issue temporary ID cards for students.

There are two exceptions to this charge, one being for students whose ID card has broken due to general wear and tear and the other for students whose ID card has been stolen, as long as they are able to provide a police crime reference number.

Should you have any problems with your student ID card, please come and check with a member of the Student Centre team who will investigate this for you further. If you have any queries about any aspect of your student ID card, please contact the Student Centre on 01494 603020 or e-mail: student.centre@bucks.ac.uk.
