    WHEN YOU ARRIVE

    WHAT HAPPENS IN THE AIRPORT WHEN I ARRIVE? NON EU STUDENTS

    When you arrive in Britain, you will go through customs. You will need to show the following to a customs official:

    • Your passport, with any necessary visas

    • Proof that you have enough money to support yourself during your study in the UK

    • NCG accommodation confirmation or proof of your accommodation whilst in the UK

    • NCG course information letter as proof that you are coming to the UK to study

    Please note that depending on your type of visa, your passport will show a validity of only 1 month (Home Office call this a 30 day vignette to enter the country). This means that you must obtain your Bio-metric Resident Permit upon your arrival to the UK. You should have been given further information about this when you obtained your visa. Once you arrive you may need to register with the police in the UK (please check your visa copy to confirm). This is the standard procedure in the UK, please speak to the NCG admin team on your first day for more information on how to do this.
