Information on BRP production and delivery
BRPs being held at UCL
General information on how to obtain your BRP can be found here.
If you have asked for your BRP to be delivered to UCL, you will receive an email once your BRP has arrived at UCL. This will include details of how you can collect it.
If you have any questions about BRP collection, please contact the Student Immigration Compliance Team via AskUCL .
If you have not asked for your BRP to be delivered to UCL, but have any questions about your BRP delivery, please contact the Student Immigration Compliance Team.
If your 90-day entry clearance vignette expires before you receive your BRP
In the event that you have arrived in the UK and have not received your BRP before your entry clearance vignette expires, please be reassured that this will not affect your right to remain in the UK or continue your studies at UCL.
If you need to travel urgently
You are not encouraged to travel/leave the UK without your BRP card, however if you choose to you will need to make an application to apply for a single entry vignette in order to return to the UK. The fee for this is £154 and you can apply here.
This does not affect the production or validity of your BRP card and any existing grant of leave. However, please note that it will not be possible for UKVI to refund the visa fee or reimburse any other costs associated with the application.
BRPs with an expiry date of 31 December 2024
If you have received a BRP with an expiry date of 31 December 2024, but you know your leave has been granted beyond this date, you do not need to report this as an error. This means that you do not need to tell UKVI if your BRP expires on 31 December 2024 but your immigration status (for example, your visa) allows you to stay longer.
