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. For any immigration advice, students should be directed to the Immigration Team within the Student experience division and for any other advise, the student can also reach the Students’ Union Advice Centre ( It is also worth noting that changes in a student’s course registration status, for instance, temporary withdrawal, will have implications for their ability to hold a visa to remain in the UK and students may wish to seek advice accordingly.
