If a student’s parents do not know a suitable person to nominate as a guardian, the College will be able to supply details of professional guardianship organisations which have been formally inspected and accredited by AEGIS (the Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students) – https://www.aegisuk.net
Family Appointed Guardians
If a parent chooses not to appoint an AEGIS accredited guardian, then the College will require copies of the following documents to retain on file:
- Valid photo ID – e.g., passport or driving licence;
- Proof of address, dated within the last 3 months – e.g., a utility bill; and
- Proof of right to live in the UK for guardians who are not British citizens – e.g., a BRP.
In the event of an emergency and if the student does not have a guardian or does not have satisfactory guardianship arrangements in place, the College reserves the right to appoint an AEGIS guardian at the parents’ expense, or to send the student home.
