Passport expires in July

Hi, my current passport will expire before the start of my course. I'm planning on renewing it, but should I do it now? Then update my application with new passport details?

I imagine I won't be able to enrol with an expired passport?

Thanks.

Hi there, most countries would now allow you to travel on a passport that expires with less than 6 months. If possible I would definitely recommend renewing it first before flying to the UK and tell them you need it expedited for university visa application purposes. A similar situation happened to me when I was enrolling but I managed to renew my passport within a month for my visa application process. Hope this helps!
