Applicants are asked to complete a ‘Statutory Declaration for International Students'. The Statutory Declaration is a solemn declaration made under the Statutory Declarations Act 1835 and formally declares the existence of a clean criminal record.
The declaration is a form which must be completed in full and signed in the presence of a solicitor in the UK or alternatively by a solicitor in your home country. The Solicitor must also sign the declaration and provide an official stamp. Please note that the Solicitor may charge a small fee, usually £5, for this service if completed in the UK.
