Due to ongoing changes and recent government announcements about national lockdown restrictions, all face to face ID card collection slots have been put on hold. We will provide further updates in this article when we have them.

Important to know: If you will not be arriving in the UK in January 2021, you will still be able to access everything online as long as you have completed online enrolment.
If you are a Home student:
Your student ID card will be posted to your UK contact address. To ensure your student ID card is posted to the correct address, please make sure you keep your UK contact address up to date on Student Records. Don't forget to upload your photo to Student Records
, as we won't be able to issue your ID card without it.

If you are on a Student/Tier 4 visa: 

When can I collect my Biometric Residence Permit (BRP)?
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.

Before we can arrange the issuance of your BRP, you will need to provide a copy of your stamped Student Entry Clearance Vignette and a copy of the ID Page from your current passport.

Once we have received those documents, we will verify your UK residential address and arrange to send your BRP by Royal Mail Registered Delivery.

Important to know: 

  • 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.

I have a different question, who can I speak to? 
If you need further support with your ID card or another related topic, please contact Registry Services with your student number.
