Returning students

We look forward to welcoming you back to Bristol for the next academic year.

You now need to register online and arrange payment of your tuition fees, if appropriate. Please follow the instructions on this page.

Welcome week takes place from Monday 23 September to Friday 27 September. Your school or faculty will contact you with information about events for returning students.

Online registration

You will need to re-register online for each year of your programme of study. This includes if you are on a placement away from Bristol or overseas.

To re-register online, log into Student Info and select the 'online registration' tab. If you have any problems, first check the online help facility. If you are still unable to resolve the problem, select the 'Contact your faculty' button. Student Info is also available via the MyBristol portal.

If you have any queries regarding your registration, please contact your faculty.

Student Info and your contact details

The Student Info screens are available all year and you should make sure that you keep your own contact details and your emergency contact details up to date at all times. This is particularly important if you are studying away from Bristol (eg on a placement or on a year abroad).

Please make sure you re-register. If you are unable to re-register this may result in your access to University facilities and buildings being stopped. There may also be financial consequences affecting funding, scholarships, loans from the Student Loans Company, and exemption from Council Tax.

  • If you have permission to suspend your studies for the entire 2019/20 session, you do not need to re-register.
  • Undergraduate students taking resit examinations or supplementary assessments will not be able to re-register until your results are satisfactory by the Board of Examiners/Progress Committee and they have been given permission to progress to the next year of study.
  • Postgraduate research students at the writing-up stage of their programme and students on taught Masters programmes who have completed the taught part of their programme and are due to submit their dissertation or project in September 2019 do not need to re-register for 2019/20. Instead they will be asked later on to ensure that all their details are up-to-date on Student Info, in preparation for examination and graduation arrangements.

Payment of tuition fees

Once you have re-registered online, you will need to wait for the next working day before you can make a payment or set up your payment plan.

Please see the tuition fees pages for more information about fees and funding.

If you have any queries regarding fee payment, please contact the Income Office
