In order to register at Brunel University London with a Student visa, you must present the following documents:
1. A valid Student visa which covers the whole duration of the course
AND which shows Brunel University London's Sponsor Licence Number (SLN) - 0BT931EY6;
AND which was issued for the course you are registering on using the appropriate Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS).
The visa may be a paper vignette in your passport called Permission to Enter and/or a plastic card called a Biometric Residence Permit (BRP). You will receive a BRP if you make your Student visa application inside the UK or if your visa is issued to cover a course that is more than six months long (please see section below).
2. An ORIGINAL letter or email from UKVI which proves they have received your permission to stay application for a Student visa to study at Brunel University.
3. An ORIGINAL letter or email from UKVI which invites you to attend a biometrics appointment, as part of your application for a Student visa to study at Brunel University.
4. An ORIGINAL letter or email from UKVI which confirms your permission to stay as a Student has been successful to study at Brunel University. The letter will also state that your BRP (which is the new visa) will be sent to you in the coming days.
5. If you have recently submitted an online Student visa application but have not yet had confirmation from UKVI that your supporting documents have been received, you must supply a copy of your application form, which can be downloaded once the application is submitted.
6. If you are an EU, EEA or Swiss national, your Student immigration status will be in a digital format (you will not receive a BRP). Instead, you will need to provide a ‘Share Code’ using the Home Office’s online service so that we can verify your immigration status. Further details on how to do this will be provided in your registration instructions.
Please be aware that if you present any of the documents described in options 2 – 5 above, you will be registering at your own risk. Should the visa application subsequently be refused, you may have to be de-registered and may lose fees already paid to the University. We will ask you to sign a disclaimer which confirms you accept this risk. Once you receive your new visa, or other UKVI decision, you must show it to the University as soon as possible.
If you already have a Tier 4 (General) or Student visa that was issued to study at another institution, or which does not cover the whole duration on your course at Brunel University, you will need to apply for a new Student visa using a CAS we have issued. Please also note that you will need to apply for a new Student visa if you move between courses at Brunel University London (for example, if you complete an undergraduate degree and then want to study a postgraduate degree). You will not be allowed to register with a Tier 4 (General) or Student visa that was issued either to study at another institution or for a previous course at Brunel University.
