Collect your BRP
We will make your BRP available for collection when you complete enrolment and collect your Student ID card, and you will need to present your original passport to us in order to receive it. King's has a duty to UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI) to take copies of your original BRP and passport, and we will do this at your Welcome location.
If you do not use our Alternative Collection Code, your BRP will be delivered to a nominated Post Office branch in the UK, and you will need to make arrangements to collect it within 10 days of your arrival and present it to us along with a passport when you collect your Student ID card.
If you are under the age of 18 and collecting your BRP from a Post Office you must be accompanied by a Responsible Adult. 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 here.
