Crossing The Border of Eternal Peril, or, A Very Important Notice

STOP!
Who would cross the Border of Eternal Peril must answer me these questions three, ere the other side he see:
What is your name?
What is your quest?
What is your nationality?

On a more serious note, we would like to inform all delegates – presenters and auditors alike – that this year all BritGrad delegates are required to supply their country of nationality to the Registration Coordinator, in keeping with university policy.

As a UK Border Agency (UKBA) Highly Trusted Sponsor, the University of Birmingham is required to ensure that all international visitors hold a visa which is appropriate for the purpose of their visit to the UK. Therefore if you are a non-EEA national they may get in touch with you to request the information they need in order to advise whether you will need a Letter of Invitation to assist your entry to the UK for the 2013 conference.

If you have already registered, you will have received an e-mail from us asking you to provide your name and nationality. We would ask that you reply in the earliest convenience. If you haven’t already registered, you will be asked to supply your nationality on the updated registration form, which is now available on the blog.

BritGrad apologises for these inconveniences, and hopes to see you in June. In the meantime, we hope you know the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow…
