International students in Portsmouth

We'll help you remember everthing

Tick all the boxes to make sure you've done all you need to do after you arrive

Use our handy checklist to make sure you don't miss out on any important tasks or exciting events when you arrive at uni.

✔ Arrival programme

You'll get your orientation timetable before the first week of term – discover events to help you settle into life in the UK including campus tours, student information fairs and the opportunity to speak to UoP Global staff. You can also discover welcome events on our Welcome Month page.

✔ Collect your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP)

Non-EEA students only: If you selected the University as the place to collect your BRP card you will have the BRP card sent direct to your UK home address. You will need to make sure that you give this address when you complete your ID check as part of your enrolment.

✔ Pre-arrival registration

Make sure to log in to Your Student View to complete the online registration form so you can access our services and facilities. You'll also need to make sure you have all your documents ready to be checked – find out what you need in the 'Registering for your course' section of the Your First Weeks page.

✔ Make an appointment for police registration

If you need to register with the police, it will say so on your vignette or your Entry Clearance Office decision letter. You need to register within 7 days of arriving in the UK.

✔ Tuition fee payments and living costs

You should make your payment online or, if you are unable to pay online, by credit or debit card. We encourage this as bank drafts and cash can be easily lost during your travels.
