  • If you are a new student and are due to attend a right-to-study check, Your passport and/or visa details will be updated when you come to your Right to Study check and we check and scan your documents. It does not matter that the passport/visa number is your old passport/visa number before you attend your right-to-study check.
  • If you get a new passport after you have completed your right-to-study check (e.g. at a later time in the academic year), please send a copy of your passport and/or visa to and we can update the information.  If you are sending a copy of your BRP card, please send the front and back of the card.
  • If your digital immigration status is missing or incorrect, please visit and generate a Share Code - please ensure the code starts with the letter 'S' as this is type of code we need. Once you have the Share Code please email with the code, your Date of Birth and your Bristol student number.
  • If your visa expiry date says 31st/Dec/2024 please do not email us to have this corrected. This is the date reflected on your BRP card. In the future there will be communication on how to amend this, however this is likely to be early 2024.
