If you are a visa national student, you need to ensure you have a valid visa to cover your period of study. All UK institutions are now legally required to report any changes in a Student Route (previously Tier 4) visa holder’s registration status to UK Visas and Immigration.
You are strongly advised to seek further advice from the International Student Team (IST) prior to submitting your request. You should log an online enquiry at www.studenthelp.bham.ac.uk including the details of your enquiry and attaching a scan of your current visa. When your enquiry has been received, the IST will send you an email outlining next steps.
Should you decide not to take immigration advice from this specialist service, please be advised that you do so entirely at your own risk.
