Student Visa Holders Registration Event

It is a UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requirement that all Student Visa holders provide a copy of their passport and visa details to the University at the start of their programme.  Once a student has uploaded these documents to eVision, they should attend a Registration Event so that the University can verify the documentation.

The next Registration event will be held in the Student Administration Building in Market Square, Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm from 27 September until 29 October.  

If you are starting your studies in September or are a current student who has not yet had your immigration documents verified, you will be sent an email asking you to book an appointment to attend the event.  For the safety of both students and staff please ensure you make an appointment rather than just go to the event without one.  This will help us keep queues to a minimum and reduce the time your appointment will last, which should take no more than 10 minutes if you have remembered to bring all the required documents with you.

What do I need to bring with me to the event?

Please ensure that you have the following documents with you

  • Passport
  • Vignette (travel visa) - found inside your passport and date stamped when you entered the UK.  If you have a digital visa you will not have one of these.
  • Biometric Resident Permit (BRP) or if you have a digital visa you will need to bring a valid share code with you.
  • Original academic qualification that is stated on your CAS

Your vignette and BRP should be uploaded through e:vision before you attend your appointment.  Please ensure you have uploaded both sides of your BRP.

I don’t have a date stamped vignette. Is that a problem?

If your vignette was not date stamped when you entered the UK it is most likely because you used an e-Gate.  e-Gates can be used by residents of:

  • Australia
  • Canada
  • Japan
  • New Zealand
  • Singapore
  • South Korea 
  • United States of America; and
  • the EU

If you arrived in the UK from one of these countries please bring some form of evidence to show when you entered the UK, eg flight ticket or boarding pass.  You will be asked to provide this at the event. This can be shown digitally, for example a flight ticket email.

If you are not a resident from one of these countries please contact International Student Support for further advice, using their self-referral form.

I won’t be arriving in the UK until after the event has finished.  What do I need to do?

At the beginning of November we will add some more Registration Event dates to this webpage so please return to this page at that point.

I will be self-isolating/quarantining until after the events have finished. Should I still attend the event?

For the safety of both staff and students please do not attend the event. At the beginning of November we will add some more Registration Event dates to this webpage so please return to this page at that point.

I have been asked to attend a Registration Event, but can't remember how to make an appointment.

If you are arriving in York before the end of October 2021, please book a time to attend the registration event on our bookings page.
