Travelling to the UK for graduation

Many students at this time of year would like to know whether they can use their existing Tier 4 visa to re-enter the UK for their graduation ceremony. Please read on for clarification.

In order to enter the UK using your student visa, you must still meet the requirements of the Immigration Rules for student visas. Students whose studies have ended and who do not intend to take another course when they return to the UK will have difficulties showing that they still meet the requirements of the Immigration Rules for students. If a border force officer considers that your circumstances have changed or that you are attempting to re-enter for a purpose other than that for which your leave was granted, your immigration permission can be cancelled and you can be required to leave the UK or, if you are a non-visa national, you can be granted leave to enter as a visitor instead.

Police Registration

Some nationalities are required to register with the police when they arrive in the UK. Your visa will normally show if you need to register with the police, or you may get a separate letter from the UKVI.

If this applies to you, usually you should register with the police within seven days of arrival. However the University of Warwick has an agreement with the police that students who arrive in September and October can see the police later than seven days.

From the end of September it will be possible for you to make an appointment to see the police on campus if you need to do this. All new international students will be notified by email in a newsletter when this service is available.

If you have a Tier 4 visa which you apply for overseas for a course lasting over six months, you will initially receive a temporary travel visa lasting 30 days. You should collect your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP), which is the visa valid for the full duration of your course, within 10 days of arriving in the UK.

Please do not make an appointment to see the police until you have collected your BRP and until you know where you will live during your time at Warwick. If you try to register with the police using your temporary travel visa either the police will not see you or you will have to see the police a second time when you receive your BRP.

Have your BRP sent to Warwick

Please don't forget that if you are applying for your Tier 4 visa from overseas (which will be valid for longer than 6 months), we recommend that you request for your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) to be sent directly to the University of Warwick, rather than to a Post Office. Your CAS email will include details of how to do this by inserting an ACL code (Alternative Collection Location) onto your Tier 4 application form.
