It may be a condition of your visa that you need to register with the police. You must do this during your first week at the Academy and you will need a letter from Reception to take with you. Police registration takes place at Rumney Police Station, 713 Newport Road, Cardiff CF3 4FD.

Check your visa ‘vignette’ (sticker in your passport). You must register if it has ‘Police registration’ or ‘Register with police in 7 days of entry’ on it.

International students who apply for further leave to remain must produce the email from the Home Office when attending Rumney police station to be registered (as they are no longer sending letters). If they have the email they must retain it until registered. If the student does not have it they can search on their email account for ATLAS. Otherwise they must email entryclearance.errors@fco.gov.uk and they will send another one. The police cannot register the student without seeing this email.
