We know that some of you are anxiously waiting for your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP – visa card) to be delivered to the University. We are aware that some of you have been waiting a long time. We are so sorry to inform you that we have not yet received any BRPs from UK Visas and Immigration.
We have been reassured by UK Visas and Immigration that your leave will remain VALID, if your total visa is longer than six months, despite the fact that your vignette expires before you receive your BRP.
These are challenging times and UK Visas and Immigration is working hard to deal with a backlog. We are in regular contact with them and will update this message as soon as we know more. As soon as we receive your BRP, we will contact you for an appointment to collect from us.
