Student Immigration Service

The Student Immigration Service provides advice for international students looking to enter or extend their leave to remain in the UK to study and works with Departments across the University to ensure compliance with UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI) regulations.

The Student Immigration Service has dedicated Immigration Advisors who are the only official provider of visa and immigration advice in the University. Advice should not be taken from any other source.
