At BU we want to give our international students all the support they need to meet their immigration conditions.

We don't want you to have any problems with your visa, so we have put together the following important information in this section to help you.

This section will help you with your Tier 4 (General) student visa extensions and advise you about working restrictions and travelling within the EU during your studies.

The AskBU staff members have received basic immigration training and can answer all your general immigration questions. If you need complex immigration advice the International Student Support Team are fully immigration trained advisers and is the only team at BU who have the required training to offer immigration advice. You can contact a member of our International Student Support Team through AskBU.

If the AskBU team is not available, you can use the OISC Adviser Finder on the right of this page to find a trained immigration adviser.

Further information

We also run regular presentations advising how to apply for a Tier 4 (General) student visa extension.
Or, if you're currently studying on a Tier 4 (General) student visa, the following presentation will give you an overview on some of the current immigration options to stay and work in the UK after your studies. No booking required:
