Getting Started

Getting Started 

Due to the current COVID 19 pandemic we have made some temporary changes to ensure you can enrol and get started at King’s. 

Collecting your student ID card 

The collection of ID cards would usually require a face to face ID check with a member of staff. This will now be completed online. 

Once you have completed the online enrolment task and uploaded a photograph, please send scans or JPEGs of the required documentation to registry_services@kcl.ac.uk

 What to Send:  

UK/EU/EEA/Swiss Passport holders - please send a scan or jpeg of one of the following original photo documents 

  • Passport; or 
  • photo driving license; or
  • National Identity Card 

Non UK/EU/EEA/Swiss Passport holders  

  • A copy of the passport that you use to gain entry into the UK, which will contain any visa information that we require. Please ensure any visa within your passport has the entry stamp on it.
  • Any separate Biometric card issued by the Home Office.
  • If you are currently applying for a Visa from inside the UK, you must send evidence of your visa application. (NB. If you applied for your visa outside of the UK, you need to wait for the visa to be granted before you travel)

Once we have verified your ID online, we will complete your enrolment and you will be able to access all course materials online. 

Non UK/EU/EEA/Swiss Passport holders will be required to attend an in person re-registration appointment to verify physical documents at a later stage. Once our services have resumed we will contact you with further details. Your enrolment will be considered provisional until this has been completed.  

ID Cards & Biometric Residence Permits 

Please note: Biometric Residence Permits (BRPs) will not be sent to King’s College London until further notice. Students will be able to collect these once the Home Office resumes delivery of the BRPs. We will notify you of this once this service resumes. 

ID card printing for students has been suspended, we will notify you when this service has been resumed so that you can collect your ID card on campus. 

If you have any questions, please contact registry_services@kcl.ac.uk 

We encourage new students to regularly check the coronavirus pages on our website for the latest updates and advice. 

As a King’s Foundations student you will be hearing directly from your department on/by Friday 15th May 2020 regarding your induction information.
