Student Visa and Immigration advice

Our International Student Office has qualified immigration advisers with up to date knowledge of changes to immigration law, so it is the only place on campus where you should ask questions about immigration. Please do not ask your friends or staff in your department for visa advice.

The International Student Advisers can answer questions about student visas and immigration at any stage of the student visa process. Please read the information on making a Student Visa application in your home country.

If you have a question, or would like us to check your visa application, please contact International Student Advice. Don’t forget to put your name and Student ID number on any correspondence.

Please ask your questions early, before the issue becomes urgent.


Contacting us for visa advice: during the working arrangements in place to protect students and staff during the Covid-19 pandemic, visa and immigration advice will be given by email. Please email

Student visa checking service
