Permission to Enrol

Students who require immigration permission to study in the UK must provide evidence that they hold an appropriate visa/ leave in order to be permitted to enrol.

This applies to both those enrolling on a new course of study at Warwick and continuing students (if you are required to obtain a new visa part way through your studies.

For information on the deadline to enrol, please refer to this webpage: https://warwick.ac.uk/coronavirus/students/arrival.

If you are currently outside of the UK and have not yet applied for a visa, or, are waiting for your visa application to be approved

You can now enrol by selecting this visa type:

  • Starting remotely overseas but not yet got visa

The course registration system provides clear instructions as to what information you need to provide.

When you receive your visa, if you intend to travel to the UK within 1 month of receiving that visa, you will just need to upload your visa with the entry stamp via the Enrolment Dashboard after arriving in the UK.

If you intend to travel more than 1 month after receiving your new visa, you will need to fill out an online form to provide details of your new visa.

If you are currently in the UK and are waiting for your visa application to be approved

As long as you have made your visa application in the UK, you can enrol by selecting this visa type:

  • Applied for a visa in the UK but not yet received BRP card

The course registration system provides clear instructions as to what information you need to provide. You will also need to upload:

  • A copy of your passport personal data page
  • A copy of your current visa
  • A UKVI Document Checklist (.pdf) which shows your online visa application date (or equivalent)
  • A UKVCAS appointment booking confirmation (if available)

We will then assess the evidence provided and confirm by email whether you are permitted to start studying.

If you are currently outside of the UK and will not come to the UK to study immediately, or you will spend the whole academic year overseas.

This option may apply to certain courses, such as PhD by published work or joint programmes where the first year of study is undertaken wholly overseas or where students are not required in the UK until much later in their studies, or where all study is to be undertaken overseas.

You can now enrol by selecting this visa type:
