This option is for applicants who do not live in the UK. You must complete your DBS application through a professional verifier ID check in your home country, prior to your arrival in the UK.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE: You cannot complete your ID check via this method once you arrive in the UK. Once in the UK, if you have not completed this application prior to your arrival your registration will be delayed. Please contact email@example.com before you travel to check you have completed the necessary registration requirements.
The first step is to pay for your DBS, the cost is £57.17, more information can be found here
Once payment has been received we will initiate your DBS application and send you online log in information. Complete your application online and choose your ID as part of the application.
Then print off the online identity verification form and take the form along with your ID documents to a professional person in your home country i.e. a Police Officer, Solicitor, Doctor, Justice of the Peace, Legal Executive, Warrant Officer, Police Officer, Teacher, University Lecturer, Barrister, Chartered Accountant, Local Councillor, Member of Parliament. The professional person may charge an additional fee for this service. The professional person will complete the identity check form confirming your identity using your original ID.
You then need to email. the completed form to the Admissions Office at Brunel University London. Once received, we will verify this information and then release the application to the DBS.
Care of address
If you complete the application late in the summer you may wish to use Brunel as your care of address. This means that your completed certificate will be sent to the Admissions Office, instead of your home address, you can select this option in the care of address section in your DBS application.
