The requirement to provide the documents used to obtain the offer
When you apply for a Student Visa, you must provide evidence of the qualifications or references you used to obtain the offer of a place on the course of study from the student sponsor.
The evidence of each qualification must be the certificate(s) of qualification, or the transcript of results, or a print out of the qualification or transcript results from the awarding body’s online checking service.
Where you have provided a print out of qualifications or transcript results from the awarding body’s online checking service, the decision maker may require you to provide the certificate of qualification or transcript of results.
You do not need to provide the documents used to obtain the offer where you are applying for a course of study at degree level or above and are sponsored by a higher education provider with a track record of compliance.
Evidence to show that you meet the requirement to provide documents used to obtain an offer does not need to be provided with the application (but may be required by the decision maker) if you are applying from the country or territory where you are living, or from within the UK, and you either hold a passport which shows you are registered as a British National (Overseas), or which was issued by the competent authorities of Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR or Taiwan (which includes the number of the identification card issued by the competent authority in Taiwan), or you are a national of any of the following:
Republic of Cyprus
The Dominican Republic
United Arab Emirates
United States of America
