As a returning student, it is important that you re-register each academic year to officially continue your studies at Canterbury Christ Church University.

You will be invited to re-register for the next academic year once:

Once we are ready for you to re-register, an email will be sent to your University email address.

Invites to re-register for the 2023-24 academic year will start to be sent from the first half of w/c 21 August 2023. Different cohorts may be eligible to re-register at different times, so please don't worry if other students are invited to re-register before you.

To re-register, you simply need to login to MyRecord, click on the 'My Registration' tab and follow the instructions. It is easy to do and only takes 5 minutes. 

If you are already logged in to the University network, you will be able to access MyRecord without re-entering your username or password.

However, if you are not already logged in to the University network, you will need to use the ‘Student and Staff Login’ - using your student username and password as you would to sign into any of our other online services.

You'll need to re-register in MyRecord, using the 'Student and Staff Login'.

This video provides an overview of how to re-register in MyRecord once you have received your invitation to do so. 

Your student photo

You don't need to provide a new student photo for the new academic year. However, if your appearance has changed significantly and you want to update your student record, you can do so. 

If you update your photo and want a new smartcard to match, there is a £10 fee for a replacement smartcard. Find out more. 

If you are aware that other students have been invited to re-register, but you have not yet received an invitation to do so, this could be because:

  • a decision about your progression to the next level of study is currently ‘pending’
  • the Board of Examiners has not yet met for your course or the outcome from the Board has not yet been confirmed on your student record
  • you have undertaken reassessment and the outcome from your reassessment Board has not yet been confirmed on your student record.

Please be patient and wait for your invitation to re-register. You may not receive this until close to your course start date.

Why re-register?

You should re-register as soon as you are invited to do so. Re-registering as soon as you can ensures that:

  • you can get your finance on time at the start of the year. Your first maintenance loan instalment can only be released to you on your teaching start date if you have registered.
  • your Course team knows to expect you and will be ready to support your smooth transition to the next academic year.
  • you have access to all the online services and resources you need to succeed.
  • your smartcard is still valid.
  • you can access your individual student timetable once it has been prepared by your Course team.
  • all your contact details are up-to-date.
  • you can focus on preparing for your next year of study.

If you do not re-register, you will not receive funding from the Student Loans Company and will be withdrawn from your course. If you are on a Student Route visa and do not re-register, your right to stay in the UK will be withdrawn.
