RegistrationNew Students from the UK & Ireland and Distance Learning Students

All students must register as soon as online registration opens and no later than your programme start date. You’ll also need to agree to abide by the University rules - and this includes payment of your tuition fees and other related costs.

To become a fully registered student you must complete all the steps below. You need to do this immediately or you will not be able to gain access to your programme materials.

Steps to become registered

You will receive an email from Admissions containing new login details for your student account, these will be different from the login details for your application.  You need to follow the instructions in the email to gain access to your university accounts and services.

Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is the best way of keeping your account and your work secure and safe from scammers, you will only have to authenticate for University Services when you are off campus. To register your devices for MFA and to find out more about it, visit the Student MFA Pages.

You will not be able to complete registration until you have paid your tuition fees. 

If you are eligible for SAAS funding, you must apply every year of your studies. Further information can be found at Student Awards Agency Scotland.

Links to further details about tuition fees & methods of payment can be found below.

From September 2023, all new undergraduate students will be required to undertake two short training courses as part of the registration process:

  • Tackling Gender-Based Violence
  • StrathEqual – equality, diversity, and inclusion for students

There are links to these on your Pegasus portal. Once completed, the red crosses will turn to green ticks. There may be a short delay between completion and Pegasus updating.

For more details about the courses, please see our Student Courses webpage which includes Frequently Asked Questions. There are a very small number of shorter University programmes that do not require completion of this training as part of registration. If this applies to you, the courses will not appear on Pegasus. Should you wish to complete them, you will be able to do so via MyPlace once you have registered.
