If your Student immigration permission has been granted for more than six months, you'll normally need to collect your BRP card from your chosen Post Office within 10 days of arriving in the UK. The nearest collection location to the Mile End campus is the Whitechapel Post Office (208A Whitechapel Road, Whitechapel, London, Greater London, E1 1BJ).
If you are under 18 then a member of the Global Engagement team will be happy to collect your BRP on your behalf. Please email the Global Engagement Office to arrange a time to drop off your decision letter and passport.
If you are an EEA or Swiss national, and applied for your Student immigration permission through the app, you will receive a digital visa and will not have to collect a BRP card.
Police Registration has been suspended for Student Visa holders as of 01 August 2022. During the suspension, new Student Visas will be granted without the Police Registration condition. This will also apply retrospectively to students who were granted Student Visas before 01 August 2022.
Queen Mary works with Greater London Hire Limited (GLH) to provide students with a secure and discounted taxi service from any London airport to campus or Stratford. Please have your flight details ready and airport terminal before you contact Greater London Hire. They can only accept payment via credit card.
