Permission to Study Check: Early registration

As a continuing PhD student with a valid Tier 4 visa, BRP or other immigration permission that allows you to study at Durham University, you are required to complete a Permission to Study Check to complete regsitration at the start of each academic year. You will be contacted by email reminding you to do this when required.

If you require a Student Status Letter during August or September, you will need to complete your registration early. In order to do this you should complete your Permission to Study Check in person, where possible.

However, if you are away from the University as part of your programme (e.g. field work, research etc), you can complete your Permission to Study Check and registration early by providing the information and documents below.

If you are away from the University but it is not programme related, you can also complete registration early by providing the information and documents below. You will, however, be required to complete your Permission to Study Check in person when you arrive back in Durham at the start of the academic year. You will be reminded about this during August and September.  

You must upload all documents which are applicable to you. We cannot complete this process if you do not.

Please note: You should only complete this form if you require a Student Status Letter after 1st August and before you complete the annual Permission to Study Check, in person, at the start of the academic year
