Letter Requests

At sometime during your studies you may need a confirmation letter to show that you are a student at Anglia Ruskin University.  This may be needed for a visa extension, to open a bank account, to exempt you from paying council tax etc. To request a letter, you must be a fully registered student at Anglia Ruskin University and you must not be in debt to the University.

The iCentre can produce the following letters upon request:

  • Confirmation of Student Status Letter: If you have a student visa and wish to travel outside of the UK then it is highly recommended that you take a letter with you confirming that you are a registered student to present to the immigration authorities when you return to the UK.
  • Council Tax Exemption
  • Bank letters: If you are from outside the EU and would like to open a UK bank account, you will need a special letter from ARU. Once you have chosen which bank you want to open an account with, please visit the iCentre to ask for a bank letter.

The International Student Advice team can produce the following letters upon request:

  • CAS letters for visa extensions (for eligible student only - see information on extending your visa here)

  • Letters to confirm if you are 'out of term' for employment purposes (see information on working during your studies here)
