Step 1: Check Email

Check if you have received an "Access to your Student Account" email. Sometimes these go to spam folders or similar so please check. Once you receive your email from SRUC please go online and Register for your studies but please don’t attempt to Register until you have received you email as it will not be successful, and you will get an error message. 

This provides:

  • Details of how to access your student account
  • Links to support & guidance materials and contacts

For new students it also includes:

  • Your SRUC Student matriculation number
  • The format of your temporary password

We issue these emails in advance of your programme start date, once you are eligible to register.
