Find important information on completing your identity check

Step three: Identity Check

The Identity (ID) Check is a compulsory element for every student starting a new course at Royal Holloway and is step three of the enrolment process. An Identity Check enables us to ensure that we have your correct personal details registered and also confirms your right to study in the UK. All documents that you present must be a true and accurate representation of yourself. If your document(s) are found to have been presented fraudulently, your student record with the College will be closed.

You can see the status of your ID check by looking at the Start of Session checklist in the Enrolment tab of Campus Connect. We recommend that you start to prepare what documents you need for your ID check, so that you can complete your ID Check.
