International Students

We know that you'll have lots of questions about planning your journey to the UK and what life will be like when you get here. We've collated advice on travel, immigration and living in the UK.

Visit the Guidance for New International StudentsLink opens in a new window webpages for more information.

Right to Study check
All full time, non British/non-Irish students, will need to attend an in-person right to study check event on arrival at the University of Warwick to complete enrolment for the course.

If you have selected for your BRP to be received by Warwick under the Alternative Collection Location (ACL) provision, you will also be able to collect your BRP at this event. You will receive information on how to book an appointment for the event after you have completed Course Registration (online). Please make sure you have booked an appointment before coming to the event.

Please note, you cannot take part in any study until you have completed both Course Registration (online) and cleared the in-person checks. Once all cleared, you will be sent an email with confirmation that you are now fully enrolled on your course and at the same time your enrolment status will be updated to "Fully Enrolled".

Visit the Immigration Events for International StudentsLink opens in a new window page for a schedule of when the BRP collection events will take place.
