Student Visa Support Service

Help and advice on student visas for international students at UWE Bristol.

Support and guidance

Studying in the UK is a fantastic experience, but student visas can seem complicated. If you need to extend your visa to complete your studies – or just have a chat about visa matters – we're here for daily drop-in sessions. We even offer appointments to help complete the visa application.

Drop-in sessions

Due to the current circumstances, the Immigration Advice Service is now closed for face-to-face drop-in sessions and appointments.

Immigration Advisers can be contacted for appointments and advice by email immigrationadvice@uwe.ac.uk or by telephone: +44 (0)117 328 3871.

Please check your email for updates on all services.

Visa application appointments

If your visa is expiring and you plan to extend your stay in the UK, please contact the service immediately and we will support you remotely with online submission, biometric data enrolment and uploading supporting evidence.

Peak times

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.
