Immigration Advice for Students

Advice on immigration can only be obtained via authorised staff who are deemed to meet the Immigration Services Commissioner’s Code of Standard and Guidance. Students should be directed to the Immigration Team within the Student Opportunity Team ( or the Students’ Union Advice Centre ( in the first instance for immigration advice. It is also worth noting that changes in a student’s enrolment status, for instance, temporary withdrawal, can have implications for their ability to hold a visa to remain in the UK and students may wish to seek advice accordingly.
