Preparation check list

Before arriving in the UK you must ensure you have the correct documents and keep them in your hand luggage. These include:

  • Your valid passport with the correct entry clearance should you require it; or your ID card if you are from the EU/EEA.
  • Your travel tickets.
  • Your health documents should you require them.
  • Your letter of acceptance from the University.
  • If you are an overseas student you may also be required by Immigration to show that you have paid your fees.
  • Originals (or certified copies) of any qualification certificates you have.
  • You should carry enough money (£ pound Sterling) to cover any expenses that you may have when you arrive. Keep credit cards, cash and Traveller's Cheques in a secure inner pocket.
  • It is important to keep a copy of the University's contact details to hand should you need them.
