    Applying for a student visa extension

    When to extend your visa?

    If applying within the UK, you must ensure you have submitted a student visa extension application within 3 months of your current visa expiry date.

    If you are applying from outside of the UK, you must ensure you have submitted your student visa before your re-submission, or before you have sat your last resit.
