What is a share code?

The UK Government issued guidance that as of 6th April 2022, employers could no longer accept Biometric Residence Permits (BRPs) as valid proof of a right to work (RTW).

If you are a non-UK national and have a BRP, you are now required to provide us with a share code to prove your right to work.

How do I get a share code?

By following the link below, you can generate a share code (a 9-letter code) and send it across to us, along with your date of birth.

https://www.gov.uk/prove-right-to-work


We then upload this to the Government site, which provides us with a document which confirms your right to work, along with the expiry date (if applicable) and any potential restrictions, for instance if you have a Tier 4 Visa.

What do I do if I have a Tier 4 Visa?

If you are on a Tier 4 Visa, you are also required to send proof of your student status and term dates. You can do this via the Chat function on the app!
​
This needs to be official communication (a letter or email) from the university with your name on, confirming your student status, as well as your course-specific term dates.
​
Please see the attached template for what we need.
