Registration Student card

Once you are registered you will have access to your digital student card through the University app.

The digital student card will be your primary form of student photo ID and can be used to access the library and is accepted as a form of ID at most venues and retail outlets. 

For formal examinations, you are required to present a form of physical photo ID such as: 

  • Young Scot National Entitlement Card
  • Driving License, BRP or
  • Passport

If you do not have one of these alternative forms of ID, then you can book an appointment to have a physical card produced. The booking system will be available prior to each formal assessment period commencing.

Upload your photo

As part of the registration process you will be asked to upload a photo to Pegasus, this is the photo that will appear on your digital card and if you require a physical card the same photo will be used.
