How do I register as a student?

Once you accept your unconditional offer to study at Newcastle, we'll email registration instructions to you. This is sent to new postgraduate students from 31st August onwards and to new undergraduates from 19th August onwards to the personal email address included in your application.

If you have any queries regarding the registration process, please see our FAQ page in the first instance.

The process for registration is as follows:

1. Access your Newcastle University student email account

You will have received an email from us with registration instructions. This email tells you how to access your University email account. Once you register, all emails from the University will be sent to your University email account - it is important to check it regularly.

The first time you access your University email account you should see an email from IT Service Desk about 'Newcastle University Student Registration'. This contains login instructions for S3P.

2. Access the Student Self Service Portal (S3P)

The Student Self Service Portal (S3P) enables you to:

  • register onto your programme of study
  • keep your details up to date
  • pay fees
  • produce documents to confirm your student  status
  • confirm module choices for the next academic year

When you first log in to S3P, you will be asked to change your password. A password confirmation email will be sent to your University email account.

You must remember this password, as you will need to use S3P throughout your studies.

Once you have logged into S3P you will be asked to accept the University’s terms and conditions which takes the form of the Student Declaration. You cannot proceed with your registration if you do not accept the terms and conditions. It is essential that you read these terms and conditions before agreeing to them.

View the step by step video guide below to learn how to complete your registration via S3P:


You can access the S3P Portal via the following link:

3. Confirming your details

Once you have accepted the terms and conditions, you will be directed to the Registration Status screen. This screen lists the tasks you need to complete in order to register:

  • check the details in the Student Data 1 and Student Data 2 screens 
  • check and confirm your programme details (make sure this matches your offer letter)
  • check your financial details 

If your programme details are incorrect then don't continue with the registration; let us know as soon as you can so we can look into it. 

If your programme is correct but there are other errors in the data then send us an enquiry via S3P and then complete your registration. We will fix any errors as soon as possible and they will not affect your registration with the university.

4. Pay your Tuition Fees

You may need to pay your tuition fees before you can complete your registration. This is indicated in S3P on the Status screen by a red cross alongside the ‘Financial Details’ status.

You can pay your fees with a credit or debit card using the S3P 'Financial Details' screen. If you can't pay your fees using a debit or credit card please click here for alternative methods of payment. To ensure a smooth registration process, we recommend you arrange payment of your fees before arriving in Newcastle.

If you have any queries about your tuition fees please contact the Tuition Fees Team or use the ‘Enquire’ button on the Financial Details screen to send a message directly to our Finance staff.

5. Press the ‘Register’ button

Once you have completed all of the online registration tasks you should have green ticks against all of the items listed on the ‘Registration Status’ screen. You can now select the 'Register' button to provisionally register.

When you have completed your registration, you will need to confirm your identity and receive your Smartcard.

You can log in to S3P at any time to reprint any documents from the ‘Documents’ screen.
