Your yearly re-enrolment and why is it important? 

Group of students taking part in the open day at the university

1. What is re-enrolment? 

Annual re-enrolment is essential to your academic journey at London Metropolitan University. Re-enrolment is a crucial activity ensuring you keep access to your London Met IT account, to the campus, Library resources and the supervision. 

After your initial enrolment when you started your doctoral journey, each year in mid-September, regardless of whether your postgraduate research studies begin in September or February, you will be sent a re-enrolment link for you to complete (it will appear under 'My Enrolment' tab at the top of the screen). To check current re-enrolment dates, check out Academic Term Dates

The re-enrolment takes place via Evision and you will need your London Met username and password to log in. 

2. What do I need to do?   

The process is straightforward and should not take you more than 5 minutes. However, the re-enrolment only lasts one week, therefore, please make sure that you complete re-enrolment as soon as you receive an invitation link. 

3. How do I re-enrol? 

  • Log into Evision using your normal University IT network account
  • You should see an in-tray on your home page 
  • The 'action' part of your in-tray will contain the message 'Click here to re-enrol' 
  • Click on the message and you will be taken through a series of screens 
  • Please read and check the information on each screen carefully before moving on to the next one 
  • Where information is missing or incorrect, please update your record accordingly 
  • To update information and/or move on to the next screen, click Next 
  • Please note, once you have clicked Next you will not be able to return to a previous screen 
  • If you realise that you have made a mistake on a previous screen, for example, you forgot to update your address, continue re-enrolling on-line and then email us using the form to the right (or below on a mobile device) to let us know that your records need to be amended 
  • Your re-enrolment will only be complete when you receive a message confirming a successful re-enrolment at the end of the process 
  • You are strongly advised to complete this process in one attempt and avoid exiting the screens half way through. For most students, the process should take no more than 10 minutes 
  • Help screens can be accessed via the '?' icon in the top right-hand corner of the main screens, which should answer the majority of your questions 

If your fees are paid by a loan from the Student Loans Company, you must have notified them that you are continuing your studies and advised them of the year of course you will be enrolling on.

If you pay your fees then you will need to have made satisfactory payment, as per the advice of the University's Income Collection Department. 

4. Why is it important? 

Missing or skipping your re-enrolment may result in denying you access to University premises, your London Met IT account (including your London Met email address) and Library resources, PhD/Prof Doc/MPhil supervision, and ultimately, a withdrawal from the course. 

Students that are not enrolled, cannot submit to the annual Research Student Progress Group and therefore progress with their research. If there are any unenrolled years before graduation, it could result in a delay in awarding your degree. Your record will have to be regularised by enrolling retrospectively for any missing period and any missing fees will be due.

If you missed your re-enrolment deadline, please email
