Why do I need to do this?

Registration is vital in order to:

  • Have any record of your attendance on a language course in the University system.
  • Ensure that your personal enrolment details held by the University are accurate.
  • Obtain a student card for the duration of your language course.
  • Access the University libraries and other facilities.

Please note: both returning students and new students must register. Please complete your student registration as soon as possible and and by no later than 5pm on Friday 27th September.

Please click on the link above, or copy into your browser and select either 'New students' or 'Returning students' if you were with us last year. Please ignore any information regarding a 'late payment charge' if you register after the deadline set by the University. This is valid only for full-time students at the University.

Then select the 'Registration Portlet in My Manchester'. You will need to log in with your username, e.g. mfbxiskv, given to you during IT Sign Up, and your personal password. If you are a returning student, you should use your given username and password from last year, if you have forgotten this, please visit and choose recover your IT account. There are three options to choose from:

Option 1: Recover using your personal email address

Option 2: Recover using secret question and answer

Option 3: Recover using a token. 

Option 1 and 2 allow you to recover the password yourself. If this fails then you can request a recovery token for option 3 from the IT support centre. You can do this via the IT Support Centre.

If you don't see the 'Register' button in My Manchester, go to 'Tools' in the top right-hand corner, select 'Student System' from the drop-down menu, click on 'Student Centre' and then 'Register'. Please follow the online step-by-step instructions to complete registration, which involves confirming your personal details held by the University. There are guidelines below if you need them.
