Before you arrive

Congratulations on gaining your place at LJMU. We look forward to welcoming you to the University for what we hope will be an inspiring and life changing student experience.

Professor Nigel Weatherill - LJMU Vice-Chancellor

What you need to do now

As a new student you need to complete the following 7 steps so that you are fully prepared to start your course at LJMU.

A new window or tab will open up in your browser giving you instructions on how to set up your LJMU computer account. You will need to type in your Student ID number and your date of birth in order to set this up. You’ll find your Student ID number on your Starter Pack letter or in your joining instructions email or CAS if you are not resident in the UK. Your Student ID number starts with ‘PN’.

You will be issued with your LJMU username and asked to set a password of your choice. Remember this is important information and gives you access to your University computer account so keep it secure. Please write down your username and remember your password as you will need these to complete Steps 2-5.

Activate your account

You need to upload a sensible looking photo of yourself similar to a passport photo, but you are allowed to smile. Please make sure that no-one else is visible in this picture and use a desktop computer rather than a mobile device in order to complete this stage of the registration process

You will be able to crop your photo online as part of LJMU's photo upload service. The following formats will be accepted: BMP, GIF, EXIF, JPEG, PNG, TIFF. Photos cannot be less than 280x360 pixels in size.

In order to access the online registration form, you will need to type in your LJMU username and password. Once you've done this, you should click on the 'Start Registration' link. You will be asked to check, and if appropriate update, a range of personal information plus the name of your programme to ensure that you are registered on the right one at LJMU.

Completing your online registration checks will take a little time but you don't have to check everything in one go; you can complete sections at different times, just remember to save any changes as you go along before you log out. If you have any queries, please use our step-by-step guide to student registration or contact the Student Registration Helpline: tel: 0151 231 3289 (9am - 4.30pm, Monday to Friday), email: studentregistration@ljmu.ac.uk

Completing Steps 1 - 3 means you can join the Fast Track queue when you come to complete your enrolment at LJMU. If you don't, you will have to complete them using a PC in the Library before enrolling. This could take some time and you will have to queue for longer.
