Hello. I just got a quick question. I’ve applied for students finances (England). I have EU passport, live in UK and got settled status. Can I send certified copy of my passport or should I use special delivery to send original? If ok to send copies then is Post office accepted to get documents certified? It’s for a part time study. I got a job interview in a couple of weeks, where I will need passport for a purpose of DBS check. I’m a bit anxious that I wont get my passport back on time. Thank you.

You need to send original documents to prove identity. Copies are not accepted.

If you need your passport in a couple of weeks then you should wait until after your job interview to send it.

Thank you. Last Friday, that is exactly 2 weeks after sending my passport, I found out, that my loan has been accepted. The whole process was easy and very efficient. I am really pleased, and glad, that was thinking ahead and sent the proof of residency and proof of address to avoid delays.This will be my 2nd degree, first in English. Excited!

Thank you!
