On campus registration

There will be no on campus registration for Trimester A for the 2021/2022 academic session.  Student ID cards will be posted to all students who have completed their online registration and provided a photograph.  Cards will be posted to the term time address you provide during the online registration process and will be sent out throughout September. 

International and EU Students: Details of required checks and documents you need to provide us with to complete your registration will be detailed in your registration email. If you have any concerns, you can contact our registration team at registration@gcu.ac.uk with any questions you have.  

Acceptable Forms of ID

To collect your student card in person, you must produce one of the following forms of identification:

  • Passport
  • Driving license/provisional
  • Young Scot card
  • European national identity card
  • ARC registration card 

If you do not have any of the above, email us for further guidance.

International Students - You must ensure you have all of the documentation below before we can issue your card and confirm your registration:

  • Valid passport
  • Valid VISA
  • Biometric residence permit (BRP)
SAAS/SLC Payments

If you have applied for SAAS/SLC funding we will confirm your details after you have completed your registration.  Please ensure that your details with both GCU and your funding body are the same to prevent any delays with your payments being made.

If you do not receive your loan payment on the due date on your letter, and you have completed your online registration, please email loans.grants@gcu.ac.uk including your student ID and student support number.  This will be on your award or payment schedule letter.


You will need to submit a photograph so that we can produce your student card.  The easiest way to do this is by uploading a suitable photo during online registration.  

If you have been unable to upload a picture you can send one to us in .jpg format to registration@gcu.ac.uk
