Certificate of Status Letter

A certificate of status letter can be requested to prove your current enrolment status at the University of Warwick and is often required in order to open bank accounts, for police registration, for council tax exemption and for some immigration purposes, as well as numerous other reasons.

The certificate of status letter will confirm your name, mode of attendance, your course title, the start and end dates of your course and your address(es). We regret that we are unable to include any information which is not stored on your student record nor to exclude any of the aforementioned information.
