To become a fully registered student at Christ Church and begin your studies with us there may be some academic conditions and clearance checks that you will need to meet and complete.

Our friendly Admissions Team are available to guide you on what you need to do, so you can be confident that you have all you need to start your course.

The academic conditions of your offer and clearance checks are unique to you and are dependent on your chosen course and level of study.

  • For academic conditions of your offer please see UCAS, UCAS Teacher Training or MyRecord.
  • For clearances specific to your offer please check your CCCU MyRecord Application Portal.

Clearance checks could include the following:

All students who will be working unsupervised with children or vulnerable adults must gain an enhanced disclosure certificate from the Disclosure and Barring Service before starting their course.

You will be prompted via your MyRecord if you are required to complete this Clearance check.

For further information check out our DBS Guidance.

All students on Education or Health and Social Care programmes need to attain Occupational Health clearance to ensure they are fit to practice.

If you’re taking up a place at the University on a professional programme, you’ll need to complete an online occupational health questionnaire. This will be live from June 2021 for those starting in September 2021. 

You will be prompted via your MyRecord if you are required to complete this Clearance check.

For further enquiries about the occupational health check once you have submitted your questionnaire, please email

The visa and immigration process can seem complex, but we’re here to help. 

The new Points-Based System Student route visa will replace the current Tier 4 visa. The Student Route comes into effect at 9:00 am (BST) on 5 October 2020.

It will affect Student and Student Dependant applications made on or after this date, regardless of the date on which your CAS was assigned. Applicants who have a valid CAS issued before 5 October at 9:00 under the Tier 4 Route will be able to use it for an application under the Student Route.

Students will require a total of 70 (non-tradeable) points to be granted leave. Points will be awarded for meeting the requirements of the route, which comprise of the sponsorship requirements, English language requirements and maintenance / finance requirements.

Unlike other applicants, EU/EEA/Swiss citizens will be granted 'secure digital status' (rather than a vignette or BRP). As part of their visa application, they will not be required to submit evidence to show that they meet the financial requirements or provide their academic qualifications used to obtain an offer of study. However, the Home Office does retain the right to request sight of these documents.

We are excited that you will be starting your journey with us here at CCCU and please do get in contact with our friendly and approachable Admissions team if you have any questions about your application, clearance checks or academic conditions of your offer.
