3) Please also enclose a copy of your Police check certificate from your own country with your application. The copy should be certified by your coordinator.
UK Police Record Checks for students who have requested placements
Please note that All students who have been formally accepted by us by way of a letter, and who are completing a placement must complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check upon arrival. The current cost for this is £44. You will need to pay for this. The Bureau can take up to 6 weeks to process the police check so please be aware your placement is likely to occur towards the end of your semester with us.
