In order for you to become fully enrolled you need to make sure that you bring everything that is listed on your pre-enrolment certificate. Students who are unable to supply all of the required documentation listed on their pre-enrolment certificate may be offered temporary enrolment.
You must bring to enrolment:
Update (26 April 2019) - As of writing, the UK is still a member of the European Union. It is not clear when the UK will be leaving the European Union and on what terms. However, based on statements from the UK Government, we do not anticipate any changes to the evidence required from EEA and Swiss students enrolling in September/October 2019. We will update this page and contact EEA and Swiss applicants by e-mail if there are changes to these requirements. Read more about Queen Mary and Brexit.
If you are a European Economic Area (including the UK) or Swiss national, you must bring one of the following valid documents:
OR any of the following documents, when accompanied with additional photographic identification:
Acceptable forms of photographic identification for use in combination with the above certificates include a photocard driving licence issued by an EU country or an Armed Forces Identity card.
If you are unable to provide an original document, we will accept a high-quality colour photocopy.
If you do not have any photographic identification, please contact the Student Enquiry Centre as soon as possible for advice
This guidance is very important as the university may not be able to fully enrol you if you do not present us with a form of identification as outlined above.
If you are not an EEA or Swiss national, you will need to provide evidence of your identity and that your immigration status allows you to undertake your studies at Queen Mary. For examples of the documents you will need to show in specific circumstances please see the internation students section of our website.
Evidence of your identity:
Evidence of your immigration status:
Evidence of the date that you arrived in the UK:
WARNING: If you are applying for Short-Term Student immigration permission on entry to the UK, you MUST NOT use an e-gate. If you do, you will only be able to study for 30 days. We will terminate your enrolment if you do not provide evidence that you have obtained new immigration permission within 30 days of enrolling.
If you are the family member of an EEA or Swiss national exercising a treaty right in the UK and you do not have a valid EEA/Swiss family permit sticker in your passport or a valid residence card, you can provide other evidence that your family member is exercising a treaty right and evidence of your relationship with them. For example, if your family member is your spouse and they are exercising a treaty right as a worker in the UK, you could provide a copy of your marriage certificate and your spouse's recent payslips.
If you have submitted an immigration application, an asylum application or an application for a document confirming your status as an EEA or Swiss national or that you are exempt from immigration control and you have not yet received a decision, please provide us with the most recent evidence of your immigration status (even if this has now expired) and:
If you are unable to provide an original document, we will accept a high-quality photocopy. If you are providing a copy of a Biometric Residence Permit or Asylum Registration Card, please make you provide copies of both sides of your card.
If you are unable to provide an original document or high-quality photocopy, you can provide us with permission to contact the UK government so that we can establish your identity and immigration status. This can take some time and you will not be able to enrol until the UK government has confirmed your identity and immigration status.
IMPORTANT: If you are not confident that your current immigration status allows you to study at Queen Mary, please send a copy of the documents above and the details page from your passport to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
If you are from outside the European Economic Area and Switzerland and are studying certain postgraduate and research programmes (and undergraduate programmes leading to a postgraduate qualification), you will need to obtain ATAS (Academic Technology Approval Scheme) clearance before you can enrol on your programme of studies. If you will be applying for Tier 4 (General) Student immigration permission, you will need to obtain ATAS clearance before requesting a CAS from the university.
You should not need to provide a copy of your ATAS clearance certificate at enrolment as this will be checked by our Admissions Office before you are cleared to enrol.
For more information on ATAS see: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/academic-technology-approval-scheme
If you have not already provided us with a verifiable, colour copy of the required original qualification certificates, you may be required to bring the originals along to your enrolment session. Whether you need to bring original documents and what documents we need to see at enrolment will be communicated to you through the pre-enrolment process.
If your qualifications are not in English, the original must be accompanied by a fully certified translation by a professional translator/translation company. This translation must include:
It must also be dated and include the original signature of the translator or an authorised official of the translation company.
If you have not yet been issued your certificates at the time of enrolment, please bring a notification slip or pass list.
It is essential that you provide original documentation where possible; if unavailable, we can accept photocopies that have been stamped and signed by the awarding institution or body.
If you have any questions regarding your qualifications, please contact the Admissions Office on +44 (0)20 7882 5511 for UG students and +44 (0)20 7882 5533 for PG students, or by email: email@example.com.
This guidance is very important as the university may not be able to fully enrol you if you do not present us with your documentation at the point of enrolment or before.
During your enrolment session, you will need to provide at least one of the following:
Note: - If your Tuition Fee Loan or sponsor only covers part of your total tuition fee for the academic year, you will also need to provide a receipt from the Queen Mary Finance Office confirming that you have paid, or set up a payment plan to pay the outstanding amount.
Note: - If you are a Home or EU undergraduate student, you will usually be fully enrolled even if your student finance has not yet been approved. However, please be aware that, by enrolling, you accept liability for paying your tuition fees in the event that your Student Finance is not approved.
For further information regarding paying your fees, please refer to the paying your fees web page.
This guidance is very important as the university may NOT be able to fully enrol you if you do NOT present us with evidence that you have paid your fees at the point of enrolment.
Medical and dental students are required to have obtained DBS and health clearance in order to enrol. More information about these checks can be found below.
Health questionnaire and health clearance
All undergraduate and some taught postgraduate* medical and dental students need to complete an occupational health questionnaire and have health clearance to start the programme. An email explaining the clearance requirements and the health questionnaire will have been sent to you by the Admissions Office. If you have not already completed the questionnaire and returned it to the Occupational Health Service at Queen Mary, please do so urgently.
If you have not received the emailed questionnaire please contact the relevant Admissions Office:
Undergraduates: Tel: +44 (0)20 7882 8478; email: firstname.lastname@example.org

This guidance is very important as the university may NOT be able to fully enrol you if you have NOT returned your questionnaire to the Occupational Health Service and obtained health clearance.
All undergraduate medical and dental students need to complete a DBS check in order to start the programme. An email asking you to log into the DBS system to commence your check will have been sent to you by the Admissions Office. If you have not already selected the three documents you are going to present at your face-to-face ID check, please do so urgently.
When you attend enrolment, it would be useful if you could bring your DBS certificate with you to prove that you have completed the check. If your check is in progress, you will be required to complete a DBS waiver which will cover the time it takes for your certificate to be issued.
If you have not received the email with your log in details, please contact the relevant Admissions Office:
