Getting started

How do I matriculate and get started?

In order to complete the matriculation process to register as a new student with the University, you must complete the following essential steps.

Step 1:

You must first complete an online basic registration form. The form will be available approximately 4 weeks prior to your programme start date by logging in to your MyEd portal and selecting the Student Personal Details channel, which can be found under ‘Accounts’. You will receive an email to your University of Edinburgh email account to let you know when the online form to register is available.

Step 2: Confirming your attendance

During the induction period (starts 5 September) your Personal Tutor will welcome you to the programme and discuss your course enrolments and the academic year ahead.  This online meeting will generally take place via an online collaborate session. You can also request a 1:1 meeting with your Personal Tutor via telephone, Skype or email correspondence. By attending the online collaborate session or arranging a 1:1 with your Personal Tutor you are confirming your attendance on the programme.

Please note you must have either attended the online collaborate session or met with your Personal Tutor in order to confirm your attendance.

Step 3:

You must arrange to pay your annual tuition fee, either in full or by the agreed instalment dates with the Income Section team in the Finance department. If you are having your fees paid for you by a sponsor (for example, your employer) or scholarship you will need to provide formal confirmation.
