Registration and right to study checks

Showing the University your passport and visa.

What will I need to do?

The University is required to check that all of its students, UK and international, have the right to study in the UK.   You can demonstrate your right to study by showing us a UK or Irish passport, or a passport from another country with a visa or other immigration permission which allows you to study at Loughborough University.  

An in-person right to study check must be completed before you can start your programme and at any point your immigration circumstances change, e.g. you obtain a new visa, or no longer require a visa because you have obtained UK nationality.

Follow the relevant link below for more details.  If you are a dual national with a British or Irish passport and a passport from another country, choose the first link.

Where will I need to show my documents?

Students at the East Midlands campus should make an appointment to visit the Student Records Counter in the Rutland Building. Once you have completed online registration and your ID card has been produced, you will be emailed the link to book your in-person registration appointment. 

Students who are based at the London campus will find more information on the Loughborough University London website.

Distance Learning students

If you are normally resident outside of the UK, you will only be required to provide evidence of your nationality and immigration status if you are attending taught sessions at the University.

If you are not studying on campus but live in the UK and are not a British or Irish national, you will need to email a copy of your immigration documents to Student Records & Operations.  See the above link for nationals of other countries for more details.
