Once you arrive at Swansea University you will need to enrol onto your course and collect your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) card.
Detailed enrolment information can be found here: www.swansea.ac.uk/enrolment/
When you arrive at Swansea University, if necessary, you will need to collect your BRP card within 10 days of arriving in the UK. During the main enrolment events in September/October you will be able to pick up your BRP card from the enrolment venue itself. At other times of the year you will need to collect the BRP card from the University’s MyUniHub on either Singleton Park Campus or Bay Campus – you should check your BRP collection letter to see where you selected the BRP to be delivered to. If you didn’t use Swansea University’s alternative location code (ACL), your BRP will be delivered for collection at a Swansea Post Office instead.
On collection of your BRP card, you must check to ensure the details are correct and accurate. If you notice any error on your BRP (with the exception of your full name not fitting on the card) you must visit the International@CampusLife team who will advise on the process for correction during drop-in times.
What if I lose or damage my BRP Card?
You must apply for a replacement BRP card as soon as possible. You must apply for a replacement BRP within three months of notifying the UKVI by email. Important: If you fail to apply for a replacement BRP within three months of losing the card, you may be issued a civil penalty of up to £1,000 and be made to leave the UK.
