International Enrolment

As an International student, once you have completed the on-line registration process you must also submit additional documentation in order for your enrolment to be completed. The required documentation will depend on your individual circumstances. You can find details in the drop down boxes below.

All International Students are required to have paid a minimum 50% of the tuition fee prior to re-registration each year, or to have supplied/uploaded a sponsorship letter for the full tuition fee.

You must have completed all of the above steps before your enrolment is finalised and student ID card issued. See below for further details about your student card.

UK Bank Accounts

Due to the pandemic most UK bank branches continue to operate on a limited service in order to ensure the safety of their customers and staff.

Subsequently most banks cannot offer account opening services through a branch.

We have identified several online banks that may be able to assist the student population entirely online without the need to visit a branch. Please see this list of alternatives below:

Bank

Account Type

Santander

Santander Essentials Current Account

Nationwide

Nationwide Flex Basic

Monzo

Monzo Current Accounts

Starling

Starling Current Accounts

Transfer Wise

Multi Currency Account

Virgin Money

The Virgin Money Current Account

This list is purely a guide to show alternatives. Students will also be able to apply for an account with HSBC, however you will still need to visit the branch with identification and address documents once instructed to do so by HSBC.

Guidance for Students Completing Account opening formalities in branches:

  1. Students should only go to a branch once advised to do so.
  2. Students coming from overseas must only visit a branch once any ‘quarantine period’ has expired and not before.
  3. Once advised to visit a branch students will probably need to book an appointment to complete the account opening process.
  4. Overseas students will be required to present a Valid PassportBiometric Residence Permit (BRP) and a Proof of Student Status Letter from the University, available in My LJMU.
  5. UK banks expect all customers to wear face makes (unless exempt). Customers will be seen individually and are advised to attend the branch on their own.
