Public notice confirming suspension of police registration scheme

New students

If your Student visa has already been issued, you may have been informed that you are required to register with the police after arrival in the UK. Following the repeal of the requirement to register, you are no longer required to do this. 

Current students

If you have already registered with the  police, you are no longer required to update your certificate with changes of  personal/study details.  You do not need to retain your police registration certificate.
