If you are awaiting the decision of a recently made visa application then instead of providing a BRP or visa you must provide evidence that you submitted your visa application. This will be the document checklist or a copy of the application itself, both of which you can obtain by logging in to your visa application.

If you arrived in the UK but your BRP is not ready for collection, then please provide the letter for BRP collection from UKVI.

New students should endeavour to complete online enrolment prior to your programme induction to ensure there are no delays in your enrolment.

Confirmation

Once you have completed online enrolment, undertaken your university induction, made any necessary payments, and completed any Visa checks we’ll notify you by email that you are officially registered as a student.*

*If you're a returning student you typically do not need to attend any virtual induction support. However, we cannot confirm your enrolment until you have completed online enrolment and provided the relevant documents as part of your VISA documents. 

Once we have officially registered you as a student you'll receive a confirmation of enrolment email. This is your proof of registration at Derby, so keep it safe.

If you don't complete enrolment you could be withdrawn from the University and this will have implications on your visa, so please ensure you contact us if you're experiencing any problems.
