Non-EEA students will be sent an email inviting them to book into an in person registration session. At the registration session students will be able to complete UKVI checks and also collect their Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) and obtain a Police Registration appointment, if necessary. A student’s registration with the College may be terminated if they do not register in person.
