UKVI policy states that universities must determine a student’s right to study before they can be fully enrolled at their institution. This means that if you don’t hold a British or Irish passport, you must provide evidence of your current immigration permission to be in the UK. 
Important to know: This includes students who are here as a visitor for a short amount of time for a short course, or students that hold indefinite leave to remain and settlement status.
We can’t fully enrol a student until we’ve assessed their right to study. It should normally take 5-10 minutes for you to complete this task online and up to 3 working days for your check to be reviewed.
