The case for Electronic Identity Document Scanning
Every University is legally required to ensure that students have the right to study in the UK and that a student’s visa is appropriate for their course. With increasing focus on immigration and tightening rules around international students from the Home Office, universities are under growing pressure to enforce the rules on student visas.
UK universities and colleges host over 430,000 international students a year, from more than 180 countries. With such a diversity among students, it is vital for educational establishments to be able to quickly and easily check, validate and keep a record of a myriad of global identity documents, in line with UKVI requirements.
