Visa Support

International Student Support & UKVI Compliance Team

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

If you are planning to study in the UK in the coming months, you are probably wondering how the coronavirus will effect your visa. We are doing our best to stay up-to-date with the current Home Office advice and to update our applicants in our Coronvirus FAQ's for International Applicants.

For more advice and guidance, please see the UKCISA (UK Council for International Student Affairs) website. Please also see the latest Home Office guidance.

New students

The International Student Support team will assist and support you throughout the process of your Tier 4 (General) Student visa application.

Available support includes:

  • how to make a successful Tier 4 application
  • complying with the Tier 4 rules during your studies
  • meeting our Tier 4 sponsor licence requirements
  • advice relating to other student-related visa and immigration issues

We will continue to support you during your studies here at the University of Bradford with matters concerning your visa and Tier 4 student responsibilities and with general welfare support all the way through to your Graduation.

Immigration rules are changing all the time and it is important you have the most up to date information to allow you to make a successful Tier 4 (General) application.

As a new student to the University of Bradford, we can advise on the CAS process and assist you with making a successful visa application for you and your family, including advising on financial requirements, TB Testing, and ATAS Clearance.

We offer practice credibility interviews, and visa support webinars, as well as webinars on planning your journey to Bradford.

You will also find information on how to pay your tuition fees, accommodation, what to do once your visa is granted and preparing for your arrival. We organise an airport pick up service and orientation programme for new students; more information on this can be found 'Get prepared' page.
