University of Bath

Document checking for new Home and EU postgraduate students

If you are a new postgraduate student with Home or EU fee status, you must attend a document checking session to complete your registration.

Why you must have your documents checked

When you arrive at the University to start your course, you must attend a document-checking session so we can confirm your qualifications, even if you have already provided us with copies.

You have not completed registration until you have attended a document-checking session.

If you are a Home / EU student and have recently completed an academic undergraduate or postgraduate course at Bath, you do not need to attend Document Checking.

If you have been assessed as overseas for fee purposes, you should follow the separate process for international students.

What to bring

You must bring any original qualifications that were part of your offer, such as:

  • degree certificates (and original translations if not in English)
  • transcripts (and original translations if not in English)
  • an English language certificate, if English is not your first language

Log in to Application Tracker to get a list of documents you must bring.
