I am arriving early on campus; can I pick up my Warwick ID card early?

If your course starts before Saturday 22nd September 2018, your Warwick ID card will be provided as part of your course induction process. For more information, please contact your department.

If you are arriving on campus on or after 22nd September, you should be able to pick up your Warwick ID card - please see the card collection page for more details.

For full and part-time students starting at other times during the year: once you have enrolled and submitted your photo online, your Warwick ID card will be available from the Student Reception, unless a member of your course administration has told you otherwise. The Student Reception is located on central campus - the opening hours are available on their website.

I'm an international student - is there anything else I need to do?

All international students must attend one of our in-person events for visa checks and Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) collection.

It is essential that the University, under its Tier 4 sponsor obligations, makes sufficient checks that all international students subject to immigration control in the UK hold appropriate immigration permission which allows them to study at Warwick. We are required to check original documents and are also required to keep a copy of these.

You should have completed the online course registration process prior to attending one of these events to help us to complete your enrolment as quickly as possible. You can find the online course registrationform at www.warwick.ac.uk/welcome/enrol/.

For the schedule of when the in-person immigration events are being held, please see the following page: www.warwick.ac.uk/enrolment/immigrationevents/

Please be aware that all international students must attend one of these events to complete your enrolment at the University.
