About this course

This course was last updated in November 2022.

This online training course provides an overview of British nationality law. The topic broadly covers two central questions:

Am I a British citizen?

If I am not, how do I become one?

As well as the acquisition of British nationality — by birth, registration or naturalisation — the course also addresses the various modes of losing British nationality.
