Visas and immigration

Important information about your UK visa

Immigration advice in the UK is regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) and the team’s advisors are accredited to give immigration advice under the OISC guidelines.

Read our information below about applying for your visa, your biometric residence permit, and working in the UK.

The welfare and immigration team can be contacted via your programme officer or directly via email. Please note that the team cannot provide immigration advice to your family or friends.

Please also look out for advice and updates in your monthly scholar newsletter, the Scholargram, or your pre-departure fellow newsletter.
