Biometric Residence Permit (BRP)

Initially, you will be issued with a 30 or 90 day visa vignette in your passport which will allow you to enter the UK during this period.

You will also be given a letter referred to as the 'BRP letter' which will confirm conditions of your visa, as well as where and when to collect your BRP.

Receiving your BRP

You will be contacted by the university and asked to provide your Cardiff address. After you have supplied this the BRP card will be posted directly to you by UK Visas and Immigration.

Providing a copy of the BRP to the University

As soon as you have received your BRP you must either present it at an in-person enrolment event. If you are not required to collect your ID card, please send a scan of both sides of your BRP card to pbi@cardiff.ac.uk.
