Student Visa Support Service

Help and advice on Student Visas for international students at UWE Bristol.

Coming to university is an exciting time but we also understand that you may have concerns or questions about your Tier 4 Visa. You may find that you need to extend your visa in order to complete your studies. The Student Visa Support Service offers daily drop-in sessions and, once you are ready to extend your visa, appointments to complete the visa application.

Drop-in sessions

The daily drop-in sessions run from 10:30 – 12:00 (Monday to Friday) and 14:00 - 15:30 (Monday to Thursday) in Room 2P4, Frenchay Campus.

At the drop in session, you will be able to:

  • Speak to a UWE Immigration Adviser
  • Ask questions about your Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS), and the application process
  • Have your documents checked
  • Organise an appointment to submit your application to the UK Visas and Immigration.

Visa application appointments

You can make an appointment at the drop-in session to submit your visa.  The Immigration Adviser will support you through the online application.

We will send your documents to the Home Office once you have completed the online application.

Please note: At the start of the academic year, we will need to restrict access to the application appointments to students who need to extend their visa urgently.

Peak times

Our peak times are the months August to November, and January. This is due to the vast number of student visa extensions and queries that we process at this time.
