What is the 'Right to Study' check?
The university has a responsibility to ensure that every student studying at the institution has the right to study in the UK. If you are already resident in the UK, you must provide evidence that you have a right to study in the UK by uploading a copy of either your passport, photo ID such as driving licence, birth certificate, or biometric permit/visa/settled status to your Applicant Portal.
Please note that if your course requires a DBS check we will need to confirm your 'right to work' in the UK instead of the right to study. We cannot start the DBS process until your right to work is checked and confirmed. Please see our Right to Work guidance here.
