Get proof that you are a student

How we can help you confirm that you are a student at Bath.

COVID-19

Because of the current circumstances involving Coronavirus (COVID-19) we're working at home in line with government guidelines. This means we're unfortunately not able to provide documents in hard-copy at the moment.

Proving you're a student of the University

If you need to prove you are a student of the University you can do this in one of two ways. You can either:

  • download a self-service student status certificate from SAMIS, as long as you are fully registered. Once you've logged into SAMIS, scroll down to the ‘Proof of Status letter request’ section. Then click on the 'Self-Service student status certificate' link. This document is not suitable for opening a bank account.

  • request a certified document via SAMIS, as long as you are fully registered. We will email you a letter in PDF format. This document is suitable for opening a bank account or if you need to provide confirmation of student status to a government or official body.

Any third party who receives these documents from you can email us to confirm their authenticity.

If you have left the University of Bath
