Your collection location is determined by the selection you made in your visa application - if you are unsure of the location, please take a look at the Tier 4 decision letter issued to you by UK Visas & Immigration. For guidance on how to collect your BRP, please follow the appropriate guidelines below.
If you have requested that your BRP is delivered to King’s you will receive an email confirming that your BRP has arrived on-campus.
ID card and BRP issuance can only be done once you have received email confirmation that we have received your BRP and you have provided your Student Entry Clearance Vignette and a copy of the ID Page from your current passport.
We are unable to post BRPs outside of the UK and can only post to the rightful holder to verified UK residential addresses.
Please also check our advice about arriving in the UK, including about whether you are required to quarantine on arrival to the UK.
If you have not received an email after being in the UK for 3 weeks, please email Visa Compliance.
Collecting your BRP from the Post Office
You must make your own arrangements to collect your BRP if collecting from a Post Office branch - please refer to the Student visa (Formerly known as Tier 4) decision letter that was issued to you for the designated Post Office address.
If you are under 18
If you are under the age of 18, you must be accompanied by a responsible adult when collecting your BRP from the Post Office. This may be your parent or legal guardian, for example, however the person you nominate must be approved in advance by the Home Office, which may take up to 5 days. You can nominate a responsible adult online on the GOV.uk webpages.
