Tier 4 Visas

Extending Your Tier 4 Visa

Do you need to extend your Visa? Do you know you can get free advice from the Students' Union on all aspects of extending your visa? Do you know the Students’ Union can send your application to the UK Visas and Immigration on your behalf?

We can check your form and documents, give you advice on the immigration rules you will need to meet and we can post your application to the UK Visas and Immigration for you.

If you would like your student visa extension application checked then ring DSU Advice or come in to book an appointment. 

More information about the student immigration rules (Tier 4) is available at the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) website here and on the UKCISA website here

Information about to collate and prepare the documents you need for your Tier 4 application can be found in our Tier 4 Document Checklist.
