In order to study in the UK you'll need to meet the various visa and immigration conditions required by the Home Office. Our team of specialist and experienced international student advisers can help you with guidance on all of these matters.
Students whose 30 day passport vignette to travel to the UK has expired, or is about to expire, can request a replacement vignette with revised validity dates provided they are still within the period of leave that was issued for their course. This will cost the equivalent of £154.
To make a request, students must contact the Coronavirus Immigration Help Centre. The request must include the student's name, nationality, date of birth and GWF reference number with 'REPLACEMENT 30 DAY VISA' in the subject line.
Students who have already contacted the Coronavirus Immigration Help Centre about this must let them know in their email. Students will be contacted by the Visa Application Centre (VAC) to arrange for a replacement visa to be endorsed in their passport. Students will not be penalised for being unable collect their Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) while coronavirus measures are in place.
A small number of international students are required by the British government to register with the Overseas Visitors Records Office (OVRO) within seven days of arrival in the UK. The stamp or the visa sticker in your passport will state if you need to register with the police.
