All the documents you send to the Home Office must be original paper documents. Emails, photocopies, scans and faxes are all unacceptable.
If any of your documents are not in English then in addition to sending the original document you must also include an original official translation that has been signed and dated by an authorised translator and includes their contact details and a confirmation that it is an accurate translation of the original document.
If you are a national of any of the countries listed by the Home Office as low-risk and you are applying from your home country or the UK you do not need to send your finance documents and course certificates.
On the 06 July 2018 this list will change and the following countries will be added:Bahrain, Cambodia, China, The Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Kuwait, The Maldives, Mexico, Serbia, Thailand, Macau SAR.
Oman will be removed from the list and will no longer be a low-risk country.
After they receive your application the Home Office may still contact you and ask for your documents. The finance documents must have the required money for the 28 days before you submitted your visa application. If you cannot provide them in the time they give you to send them, then your application will be refused.
You only need this if you will be studying or researching one of the subjects in the Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS). The subjects on the ATAS list for postgraduate research are in science, engineering and technology and for taught postgraduate programmes in engineering and technology.
You will only have to apply for clearance if your offer is for a postgraduate course from Oxford Brookes in life sciences or technology, and there is a JACS code in your offer letter. If there is no JACS code in your offer letter, you do not need clearance.
If you are an undergraduate student and will be studying one of the subjects on the ATAS list for undergraduate courses in engineering, you will only have to apply for clearance if we have sent you an offer letter with a JACS code in it. If there is no JACS code in your offer letter, you do not need clearance.
