Overseas Police Checks
Whilst all students of the relevant courses are expected to complete a DBS Check, any student who has resided outside of the UK for any continuous period of 6 months or more within the last 5 years, will also need to apply for an Overseas Police Check for that country.
Occasionally, overseas police checks are not available in English – and, in that case, a notarised translation must also accompany the police check provided.
The DBS has provided Guidance Notes about how to obtain Overseas Police Checks, which should be an applicant’s first point of reference. These can be found on the government's DBS guidance page.
