My info: Student card

Upload a student card ID photo

You must upload a photo to get your student ID card.

Existing students who already have a student ID card can also update their photo. Uploading a replacement photograph does not produce a new student ID card.

Uploading your photo

You may find it easier to use a computer to upload your ID photo.

  1. From the My info tab in MYUWE, go to the 'Student card' tab under 'My documents'.
  2. Select the 'Upload a photo' link.
  3. Select the 'Upload a photo' button.
  4. Select 'Choose file' to locate your image and then select 'Upload'.
  5. Your image will appear in an example student ID card. Adjust the image to fit within the borders. Use the 'Rotate photo' button if your image is the wrong way around.
  6. When you're finished, select 'Crop photo'. If you're happy, select 'Use this Photo'.
  7. To continue with the upload, select 'Use this photo' or select 'Start again' to cancel your changes. Once you have submitted an application, you cannot start another one until we have created your student ID.
  8. You will be told how to collect your ID card when you arrive at UWE Bristol.

Photo requirements

We need a passport-style photo. Your photo must be:

  • recent
  • in colour
  • of your full head, facing forward
  • without glasses, hat, or head covering (unless worn for religious or medical reasons)
  • taken against a light background
  • at least 293 pixels wide by 328 pixels high
  • no larger than 10MB in file size
  • in .jpg or .png format

Uploading on a mobile phone

You may find it difficult to use the crop function of the photo upload tool on mobile. If you're having problems, try using your phone's photo editor to crop the image before uploading. You should also make sure the image meets our requirements. We are working to improve this functionality.

Order a new ID card

If you have lost or broken your existing student ID card, you can order a replacement card on the UWE Bristol online store. If you want to change your photo, upload a new image first. Once you have placed an order, visit an Information Point on any campus to collect it.

Your photographs will be used only for legitimate identification purposes connected with your studies, health and safety, student accommodation and security.
