The vignette (sticker) you are issued in your passport will be valid for 30 days. During the COVID-19 pandemic you may be given a 90-day vignette.
You are required to collect your BRP within 10 days of arrival. The closest collection centre is in Southsea, Portsmouth.
When you collect your BRP, you must bring your passport and VISA DECISION LETTER with you. Please note that your letter does not state the location of your collection centre. You should check your visa application form for information on this.
Please note that if you are an EU/EEA/Swiss national used the UK ID check app when you applied for your Student Route visa, you will not be issued a BRP. Your status is digital, and you can prove it by requesting a share code via the UK government website.
