How to ensure your student loan isn't delayed

Students are required to re-enrol annually. If you do not re-enrol you will no longer be treated as a student of the University and your student rights (such as library and IT access) will be revoked.

What is enrolment?

Enrolment is the process through which you:

  • Agree to be a student at the University for the whole, or part of, the academic year.
  • Indicate your agreement to to abide by the Regulations and Ordinances of the University - something which is legally required of all students.
  • Check and update key personal information in your student record.

If you do not enrol you will not be entitled to:

  • Your student ID card
  • Resources for your programme of study
  • Participate in assessment
  • Receive a Council Tax Exemption Certificate (where appropriate)
  • Receive your Student Loan (where applicable)
  • Live in halls of residence (where applicable)
  • Access additional University services and information.
Remember, you student loan from the government will not be paid into your account unless you re-enrol at university. 💰💰💰

How do I enrol?

Depending on your university, you may have to confirm your attendance by swiping your I.D. card, confirming on your university intranet and/or telling your Student Services Centre. If you are unsure, check your university website for details or just ask your tutor.

Smart-Pig was set up by two students whilst at university, their vision? To create a company that was just for students, that was safe and fair and one that took into account the unique financial situation of everyday students. One that usually involves waiting on student finance, relying on part-time jobs, friends, and parents to make ends meet.

If you find yourself a little short on cash before your next student loan payment you could borrow up to £350 from Smart-Pig.com until your loan comes through.

Now go and re-enrol if you haven't already done so!
