1. When your Student (formerly Tier 4) visa expires, your course will have finished and
you intend to return home.
If your current visa gives
you enough time to complete your course and you do not intend to do any further
study or stay in the UK for any other reason, you should schedule your travel
arrangements to leave the UK before your current student visa expires. If
this is your situation please ignore the email/webpage.
2. Your Student (formerly Tier 4) visa will expire before your course finishes.
If your current visa does
not give you enough time to complete your course (for example you have been
referred in a module or need more time for your PhD), you will need to make a
visa extension application. Please contact International Student Advice (ISA)
to find out how you can do this.
3. You have made an
application to get a new visa (not Tier 4) yourself.
If you have made an
application to extend your visa yourself then you need to provide evidence of
the application to ISA.
4. Your current Student (formerly Tier 4) visa covers your course but you would like to stay in the UK to study a new course.
If you are intending to study a new course you will need to make a visa extension application before your new course starts. If your new course will be at the University of Plymouth we recommend that you contact us at ISA so you can prepare for your visa extension.
