The International Student Welcome hub provides a range of services to new and returning students at the start of the academic year, these include:

  • Visa Immigration Checks eg. Right to Study checks (visa holders must have their RTS check before commencing their studies)
  • Student ID cards (visa holders must have their RTS check before they get an ID card)

Please note:

If you are visiting the International Student Welcome hub to collect your student ID card you must bring with you your passport and current visa as well as your student ID number.

If you have lost your student ID card and are visiting the hub for a replacement card you will be charged £10 for this service before you are issued with the card. During Welcome Week we will only be able to take cash payments.

BRP Collection Zone

If you are an international student who needs to collect your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) from the University (not a Post Office), you will be invited by the University to attend a mandatory appointment to collect your BRP card. You must attend this appointment when requested by email to do so. Further information is available on the BRP webpage.

Important information for international students collecting BRP cards from the University:

1) Your BRP collection appointment, date, time and location will be sent to you by email.

2) You must check your emails regularly so that you do not miss this email.

3) You must attend this appointment at the date and time it says on your email.
