Once you've accepted an unconditional offer, there are some things you'll need to do. You will be emailed instructions (typically around six weeks before your course starts).

We will send a 'joining instructions' email to your personal email account detailing what to do - please read it carefully.

1. Set up your IT account

Set up your account at idm.york.ac.uk using the York username and password sent to you in your joining instructions email.

Once you have set up your IT account, keep checking your University email account (Google Mail) as this is where we will send all future communications, including any module choices. 

2. Enrol as soon as possible

Log in to e:Vision, your student record, using your York username and password and complete the enrolment tasks:

  • Enrol 
  • Upload a passport-style photo
  • Set up direct debits for your accommodation (if you're in University accommodation) and tuition fees (if you're paying your own fees)
3. Let us know your visa & passport details
  • If you are from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, you will need a visa to stay in the UK. See immigration advice for detailed information, including advice on which application form to use, and a list of supporting documents required.
  • Using e:Vision, upload a copy of your personal details from your passport.
  • If you are a Tier 4 visa holder, use e:Vision to tell us your intended travel date and send proof of your visa application - before you leave your home country.
4. Confirm your accommodation and college
5. Let us know of any additional requirements
  • Let us know of any requirements or adjustments you may need for your University accommodation.
  • Let the Student Hub know of any requirements or adjustments we can make to help you learn. This may include disability or mental health support.
