Confirming your right to study

We do not need to check continuing students' immigration documents at the start of the new academic year unless you have recently renewed your passport or visa or these documents are due to expire soon. If this applies to you we will contact you by email or you will see a message in S3P. If requested to do so you should present your immigration documents at the registration venue during the arrival, welcome and registration period.

If you have a visa application pending with the Home Office at the time of registration, please ensure that you have evidence that you have made an in-time application at the time of registration. Outside of the registration period, right to study checks will take place in Student Services, Level 2 Kings Gate at the following times:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday

11am - 12pm

2pm - 3pm

No appointment is needed.

Please note that the University reserves the right to make enquiries regarding the process of any pending applications with the Home Office to ensure that they have been made in-time and that they are valid. If as a result of such an enquiry, it is established that you have overstayed your previous visa, or that your application is likely to fall for refusal, your registration may be at risk.
