Resits, repeat study and visa extensions

If you need to resit or repeat part of your course you may be able to extend your Tier 4 (General) student visa.

However, due to immigration legislation, this won't always be possible. You should contact a UWE Bristol UWE Immigration Adviser as soon as possible to discuss your options.

If you need a Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) for a visa extension, you must complete a CAS request form. Come to a drop-in session where an immigration adviser will complete the form with you and submit if on your behalf.

If you are eligible for a CAS you will also have to meet visa requirements as part of the visa application process. Some of these are time sensitive, so it is a good idea to start to prepare your documents at least three months before you apply for your visa extension.

Applying to extend your visa

Speak to a UWE Bristol Immigration Adviser for advice on extending your visa.
