Biometric Residence Permit (BRP)

Last updated: 10/08/2023 14:43

The process for collecting your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP).

Initially, you will be issued a 90-day visa vignette in your passport which will allow you to enter the UK during this period.

Collecting your BRP card

You can find the location where you need to collect your BRP by referring to your visa application form.

If your visa decision letter states that you need to collect your BRP from a post office, visit the post office mentioned on your visa decision letter.

Your visa decision letter may state that your BRP card will be delivered to the Centre for Student Life, but please do not visit the Centre for Student Life or any other office until you have received an email from us about your BRP.

Alternative Collection Location (ACL) code

If you used our Alternative Collection Location (ACL) code when you made your visa application, wait for an email from the University with a date and venue to collect your BRP card.
