Students who are Bulgarian and Romanian nationals and who wish to work during their studies have to apply for and be issued with a BR1 registration certificate before they are legally entitled to work in the UK.
The International Student Support team can help you to apply for the BR1. Please come and see us in Founder's Building West 139 for an informal chat, or email us for further information. You would need to book an appointment to have your application and supporting documents checked by one of our team. Please note that having your application checked by us does not guarantee that you will be granted the BR1.
Please be advised that BR1 applications can take a number of months to be processed, therefore please ensure that you have made sufficient provision to help fund your living expenses before you come to the UK, and apply for the BR1 registration certificate as soon as you commence your studies at Royal Holloway.
For further information on how to apply please refer to the UKBA website.
