I need a letter confirming that I am a student at Oxford Brookes. Where do I get this?

  • An attendance certificate or 'Proof of Enrolment' is a document that you may need for a wide variety of situations including, opening a student bank account, as a reference for a letting Agent or if you need to apply for a Schengen Visa. Attendance Certificates can be issued to students once you have completed your full enrolment. You will also need to update your term time address before requesting the Attendance Certificate as for most uses the address must appear on the Certificate.

    To update of add your Semester/ Term-time address, please follow the steps below:

    • Log-in to your PIP page using the instructions provided to you at your enrolment. Click on the ‘My PIP’ tab on your PIP page.
    • On the ‘My PIP’ tab, click on the ‘To view or alter further address and telephone details’ link found on the right side of the page towards the bottom.
    • On the next page, click ‘Change this address’ in the Semester/Term-time address.
    • Enter your correct Semester/Term-time address and click update.
    • On the next page, select the correct type of accommodation and click confirm. You will then be shown the Personal Address scheme again – check that your Semester/Term-time address has been updated and is shown correctly. 

    After updating your address, you can request an Attendance Certificate in person at the Student Central counter in the JHB Building at Gipsy Lane, or alternatively you can request an Attendance Certificate is posted out to your Semester/Term-time address by emailing studentcentral@brookes.ac.uk. Certificates at our counter are produced while you wait, obtaining a certificate by post will take 4-5 days.
