Enrolment confirmation letters for new students

Confirmation of enrolment

Once you have completed your enrolment — including paying fees or providing evidence of how they will be paid — we will automatically email to you a certificate of registration which can be used to confirm your student status.

During your study at SOAS you may need a document to prove your student status, whether it's for: 

  • council tax exemption
  • opening a bank account
  • immigration purposes — how to apply for a student visa 
  • many other reasons

The certificate of status letter will confirm your:

  • name
  • mode of attendance
  • course title
  • course start and end dates
  • address/es

Once you have completed your enrolment — including paying fees or providing evidence of how they will be paid — we will automatically email to you a certificate of registration which can be used to confirm your student status.

Two ways to request additional documents

If after receiving the student letter you need a document with additional information, the Student Hub can provide this as soon as you are fully enrolled. You must make the request via the Student Information Desk (S.I.D.)
