Collecting your BRP

  • Arriving after
  • Most students will receive a temporary visa that is valid for 30 days as a sticker in their passport. It will only allow you to enter the UK, you will then have to collect your visa for the full length of your course.

    The visa you will collect will be a Biometric Resident Permit (BRP) and is a separate card (sometimes referred to as a Biometric Immigration Document or BID). You need to collect your BRP within 10 days of arrival in the UK and normally you need this to enrol.

    If you are collecting your visa from Oxford Brookes, it will be available from Student Central in the John Henry Brookes Building. You will need to have your passport with you.
