Setting up your MyStudyLink account
To have access to MyStudyLink you need to have an online account.
When you apply online, you'll create a login using the RealMe login service, consisting of a username and password. This will create an online account in our system. Once your application has been processed and we have received all of your identity documents, such as a verified copy of your birth certificate or passport (if we haven't already seen it), you can then access your MyStudyLink account using the login you created.
Logging into MyStudyLink
Once your application has been processed and we have received all of your identity documents, such as a copy of your birth certificate or passport (if we haven't already seen it), you can then access your MyStudyLink account. To login to MyStudyLink you will need to use the username and password that you created when you applied online.
If you forget your password and/or username
If you have forgotten your username and/or password, you need to use the RealMe login service to reset these.
If you have forgotten your username you can click the ‘Forgot my username’ link on the RealMe login page and enter your email address to have your username emailed to you. You must enter the email address that you previously used when you created your login.
If you have forgotten your password you can click the ‘Forgot my password’ link on the RealMe login page and you will need to answer two of the security questions you previously set up. A temporary password will then be emailed to you.
You can also access the 'forgot' links through the RealMe Manage login link below.
