Edinburgh Napier University Online Matriculation

Welcome Communications

Welcome emails are sent to all students at UF (Unconditional Firm) status from start of December onwards. In previous years new students received a welcome pack by post which contained a Welcome Guide. Now the process is paperless, all information is available under New Students on myNapier.

Online Matriculation

From start of December onwards students will be sent a series of emails that will give them access to university IT services and to the online matriculation process.

There are three emails as follows:

Getting Registered with Edinburgh Napier University (Step 1 of 3)

This email advises students about the matriculation process.

Getting Registered with Edinburgh Napier University (Step 2 of 3)

This email gives students a secure link to create their Edinburgh Napier password which they will use to access all IT services.

Getting Registered with Edinburgh Napier University (Step 3 of 3)

This email confirms that they have successfully created their password and then gives the link to the online matriculation process, the password manager and the online Introduction to Computing & Library Services.

At the end of the matriculation process students will be told if they have to attend the Immigration and Finance checks on campus and they will also be told when and where to collect their student ID card.

They will have access to their student email address and if they don’t have to attend the Immigration and Finance checks they will also have access to core modular information on Moodle.

If a student does have to attend the Immigration and Finance checks, they can still access Moodle. However, they will not be able to access any modular information until they have fully signed off their matriculation at the Immigration and Finance checks.

​Matriculation Definition

Matriculation at Edinburgh Napier for new students should encompass the following processes:

  • The sending of appropriate welcome communications to both on and off campus applicants who hold an unconditional offer of a place at the university which they have firmly accepted.
  • The sending of matriculation emails advising these applicants of the process to be followed which will allow them to formally register as a student with Edinburgh Napier.
  • The password creation process which allows applicants to create their Edinburgh Napier password for access to all IT services.
  • The completion of the online matriculation process which enables these applicants to check and amend the information that we hold about them, to set up payment plans as appropriate, to formally agree to abide by the university regulations and therefore become a registered student with the university.
  • The ability for students to register for the password manager process and to complete the online Information Services induction.
  • Access to face to face Immigration and Finance checks that allow relevant students to complete payment of fees due/set up payment plans and to have their passport and visa checked for UK Border Agency purposes.
  • The distribution of ID cards to students who have completed all necessary administrative processes.
  • Completion of matriculation leads to enrolment on core modules, access to option modules and access to the modular information on Moodle.
  • Failure to matriculate leads to withdrawal of IT services and ultimately withdrawal from the programme and relevant reporting to any external agencies.

For students

Matriculation is the formal and administrative processes for an applicant to become a member of the university by meeting the university requirements to do so. It is the combination of a series of processes through which an applicant becomes current/registered at the university on a particular year of a particular programme for the appropriate academic session.

The processes are:

  • Creation of a university password which allows access to university services and actions required by applicants to access these online services.
  • Completion of the online matriculation process, including ensuring that the information contained in the task is accurate and up to date and payment of fees or the setting up of a payment plan if appropriate and the agreement to abide by the university regulations.
  • Registration for the password manager and completion of the online Information Services induction.
  • Satisfaction of any applicable Immigration and Finance requirements and attendance at any relevant face to face checks by students who are required to confirm payment of their fees and/or have their passport and visa checked.
  • Collection of the student ID card.
