  • Bank statement that you used to obtain your Tier 4 visa to show the Immigration Officer on arrival at the airport in the UK
  • Any other original documents/transcripts listed in your offer letter/CAS statement which you need to register and enrol on your course, and to extend your visa in the UK. For example, your high school certificate or home university certificates including translations (if originals are not in English)
  • Immunisation History Book for medical registration
  • UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office Visa Tuberculosis Screening Certificate (if required)
  • If you have a visa for a course longer than 6 months, please bring your UKVI decision letter detailing where to collect your BRP card
