How to complete Returning Registration

All continuing students must complete returning registration via KentVision every year. Failure to complete Returning Registration may result in you being unable to continue your studies.

Returning Registration should not be confused with Online Module Registration.

If you are a new student, you should complete enrolment rather than Returning Registration.

When registering you will be required to check your personal details and update them if they have changed. Please see the below step-by-step guidance on how to complete Returning Registration.

If you are funded by Student Finance England, completing Returning Registration will usually trigger your funding payments.

If you are unable to register due to an outstanding debt or finance flag on your record, you should contact the Income Office for assistance. 

Please note that fee payment does not mean you are registered. 

When is the Returning Registration deadline?

The Returning Registration deadline for the academic year 2022/2023 is 10am Monday 17 October 2022. You will receive an email in mid September 2022 when you can begin the process. In order to receive your student loan by the start of term, please complete Returning Registration before 4pm on Tuesday 20 September 2022.
