Having the right to study means you have the correct immigration permission to allow you to study in the UK. The type of permission you hold could be a visa or endorsement.
The Right to Study check task allows the University of East London to collect and retain copies of your passport and visa or pending Student visa application (if you are inside the UK) to ensure you have the right to study in the UK in line with our duties as a UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) Student sponsor.
UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) Student Sponsor Licence
The University holds a UKVI Student Sponsor Licence. The licence places a legal responsibility on sponsors to ensure that their international students have the right to study in UK, amongst other duties. The Right to Study check must be carried out for every non-British or Irish national in order to become a fully enrolled student at the University of East London.
Failure to comply with our duty to ensure our students have the right to study in UK, will lead to non-compliance. Non-compliance can have an adverse effect on our Student Sponsor Licence. This is the reason our students need to ensure that they provide all the necessary documents we request from them.
