Passport details

You need a valid passport if you wish to enter the UK to study.

It is important that you ensure that the name shown in your application form matches the name in your passport. If the names do not match, you must change your name in the 'Personal Details' section of the application form. This is important as the information that you provide will be used by the Graduate Admissions Office to prepare your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS), which is required to complete your visa application form.

The passport that you specify within your application must not expire within 6 months of the course you are applying for starting. If you change your passport after submitting your application, you can change its details within your Self Service account.

Visa details

If you are not a national of an EEA country or Switzerland, you are likely to need to apply for a visa in order to enter the UK.

Please provide details of the visa you currently hold, if any.
