As part of your enrolment, the university must verify your immigration status to confirm your right to study. The Right to Study (RTS) check is a verification process to ensure that all international students (except for Irish nationals) hold an appropriate immigration permit to study in the UK.
It normally takes 5-10 minutes for you to complete this check online and up to 3 working days for your check to be reviewed.
