  • A recent resemblance of you on your own.
  • A head and shoulders shot with you looking at the camera.
  • A good quality photo, e.g not a photo of a photo.

Continuing Students

If you are a current student continuing on to a new course, you do not need to apply for a new UniCard. You will be issued a new UniCard using the photograph we already have on file for you ready for your course start date.

If you have a query about your card or the photo that is on record please log an enquiry in SID Online under the category "Unicard".
