If you are starting your studies in 2020, then you should receive an email about enrolment in early September. Note - you must have an unconditional offer to enrol. The first stage of enrolment is online and involves uploading a photo of yourself for your Uni-ID card.
Your course will start on 5th October 2020. This applies to students who are planning to study online in the first term as well as those who plan to arrive on campus. You must have completed the online enrolment by this date and be ready to start full-time study. We hope you will be able to arrive at the University at the start of term, however if you are not able to arrive at campus in person because of visa delays, travel restrictions, or other issues, you can join us in person as soon as you are able to travel. All students must be present and physically on campus by Monday 11th January 2021.
Please use this form to tell us when you are likely to arrive. If your plans change, you can complete the form again with a new date.
When you arrive, you will need to complete the enrolment process by collecting your University card. You will have other things you will need to do if you are an overseas student, such as attend an in-person visa check – review your enrolment dashboard for information.
You will also be invited to a WMG Hello event within the first few days of your arrival. This will be an opportunity for you to meet us and some fellow students. It is essential you attend this event so we can confirm you have arrived on campus.
Warwick Welcome 2020

Please note: for 2020 entry, many of these welcome events will be held virtually
- Settle into university-life
- Make friends
- Understand what is expected of you, as students, on your degree programme
- Understand the breadth of Warwick’s offer (both opportunities and support)
- Learn your way around
- Adapt to life in a new country and new environment
- Be prepared for day one of term
More information will be made available to students in the coming months, however, we strongly recommend that you attend the entirety of Welcome Week to make settling in and adjusting to the University of Warwick a little easier. The interactive Welcome Week timetable will be live for students to access in early September.

-- WMG Registration FAQs --
- Can a friend or agent register for me?
- No. It is absolutely essential that you register in person; you must not arrange for someone to register on your behalf.
- What should I bring to registration?
- If you already have your University card, then please bring it with you. If not, it is helpful if you know your student ID number, since this helps us identify you quickly. Once registered, you will attend a first introductory lecture which will explain the basics of your course. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions, so bring a pen with you. These sessions are open to new WMG MSc students only; friends attending courses at other departments, agents and chaperones will not be admitted. We may demand to see your ID at any time to ensure this policy is adhered to.
- What if I am late getting to the UK?
- If you know you will arrive after 26th September it is essential that you inform us using the late arrivals form. There are limits to lateness. If you are arriving late, you must still register with us when you get here. If you are an overseas student you must have a visa valid for study before we will accept you onto the course.
- I've already enrolled at the University, do I need to register with WMG too?
- Yes. Enrolment at the University and registration at WMG are different; you must do both. The University will email you in September with instructions on how to enrol.
- How long will registration take?
- You should plan on registration (including the introductory lecture) taking 2-3 hours. We will do our best to register you as quickly as possible, but please bear in mind there will be queues at busy times.
