If you have any technical issues or errors while completing your online registration, please email the UNM IT Service Desk.


Step 3–Payment of tuition fees

Please make the payment of tuition fees before signing the registration form (Step 4) and commencing your classes.

Please refer to the Payment of Tuition Fees for Malaysian Students or Non-Malaysian Students, for further information.

Malaysian Students

Non-Malaysian Students

Do I need to inform the University once I have made the payment of tuition fee?

Please email the proof of payment to the Finance Office if the payment was not done through MyNottingham portal.

I am entitled to a scholarship provided by the University. How much do I need to pay after the deduction?

Use our Tuition fees calculator to determine the amount of your tuition fees.


Step 4–Signing of registration form

As a new student, you are normally required to complete the ‘In Person Registration’ on campus. However due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the University has changed the ‘In Person Registration’ process to ‘signing of registration form’ and ‘confirming attendance’ remotely.

Please download, sign and upload the registration form as part of the ‘In Person Registration’ process.

Steps to download, sign and upload the official registration form

When can I download the official registration form?

An email notification will be sent to your University email account within two (2) days of completing  your online registration and payment of tuition fees.

I have completed document verification, online registration and payment of tuition fees but have not receive email on ‘signing of registration form’.

Please reconfirm that you have completed Step 1- 3 before sending an email to Student Registry for assistance.

I am an international student; do I need to hold a valid visa to study remotely?

International offer holders (who are required to have a student pass to study) must obtain the EMGS Approval Letter before registering and starting their online classes with the University.  However, they will still need to obtain the Visa Approval Letter (eVAL), issued by the Malaysian Immigration Department, before starting the face-to-face classes. The University will inform all students when they should return to campus once the Malaysian government has given the clearance. Please ensure you keep checking your official University email account.

For further information, you can read the EMGS News Bulletin or please contact the Visa Office if you have any further enquiries.


Step 5–Confirming attendance at registration 

As the ‘In Person Registration’ will take place remotely, Student Registry will schedule a personal video call with you in order to confirm your attendance as the final part of the registration process; instructions will be sent to your email.

It is essential that you attend your video call to verify your identity with the University.

What do I need to show during the video call?

  • Your Nottingham ID number.
  • Your passport or national identity card.


Step 6–Induction programme for new students

Upon completion of the registration process and payment of tuition fees, you are officially enrolled with the University. It is important for you to view the online induction videos, which will guide you on the next steps (i.e. choosing your modules) before starting your online classes. The online induction programme for June will be available to all new students from 11 June onwards.

How do I know when to start my online classes?

You can view your timetable for your online classes here.

When can I travel to the campus and resume my programme through normal delivery?

The University will inform all students when they should return to campus to resume their face-to-face classes. Please check your official University email account for the latest updates.
