Visa update for international students

Prior to January 2018, international students who wished to add a placement year on to their existing degree programme were required to return home to obtain a new Tier 4  visa before they could commence their placement. Now, students are able to renew their Tier 4 visa from the UK, either before or after their work placement.

More detailed info about this can be found on the Visa team’s website here.

The current deadline for international students to confirm their UK placement is 11 May. In light of these changes, this will be moved in line with deadlines for UK and EU students to 31 July 2018. The deadline for students to confirm an overseas placement will remain 11 May.
