Collecting your BRP (Tier 4 students)

If you applied for your Tier 4 visa overseas and nominated Loughborough University as the delivery location for your BRP, you will be contacted with further information about how your BRP will be issued to you.

In order for us to make registration as safe as possible, please do not visit the Student Office to collect your BRP unless an appointment has been confirmed. 


If you are collecting BRPs on behalf of your dependants, you must present their passports.  Your dependants do not need to be present.

Collection from a Post Office

If you are collecting your BRP from a Post Office, you are encouraged to do this prior to collecting your University ID card.  The UKVI letter confirming that your visa application has been successful will state the address of the Post Office and the collection date.
If you are issued with your student ID card prior to collecting your BRP, you must present this at the visa scanning event or Student Enquiries Counter before the expiry of your 30 day vignette.  Failure to do so will lead to you being placed on a leave of absence and your Tier 4 sponsorship being withdrawn.

Visa Extension Applications

If you applied to extend your visa from within the UK, including through the University’s Visa Extension Scheme, your passport and BRP will be delivered to the address you provide in your visa application.
