Lost or stolen BRP flowchart

If you lost your BRP card, you should obtain from the local police force where the theft or loss occured:

A crime reference number if your BRP card was stolen,

or

A case reference number if it was lost

Lost or Stolen in the UK:

We are aware that some UK police forces have advised that they do not give case reference numbers for lost BRPs.

If this is the case, please follow the instructions given in the Application Guidance

You must notify the University of Warwick as soon as possible if your immigration permission that allow you to study at the University of Warwick have been lost or stolen.

Please click on the following link to notify the University of your lost BRP:

Lost BRP Notification Form

Once you receive your new BRP card, you must present your original passport and new BRP to the University of Warwick Study Abroad & Immigration Service Reception, as soon as possible.

However, if you lost your BRP in the UK, instead of visiting us in person, you may provide us with a scanned copy of your new BRP (front and back) using our online form.

Failure to do so could lead to you being withdrawn from the course for failing to fulfill your immigration responsibilities.
