Application support

The International Student Support Service offers advice and guidance to students applying for Tier 4 visa extensions from inside the UK.

Application check and send service

We offer an Application Checking Service, where trained advisers will review your application form and documents and check that they meet the UKVI requirements. This service is available to both postal applicants and students who choose to apply in person at a PEO. If you are applying by post, the International Support Service can do both of the following:

  • send your application to the UKVI on your behalf
  • act as a point of contact and correspondence address for any communications from UKVI regarding your application.

If you wish to use this service, please read the Check and Send service's conditions of usePDF icon . You must submit your application draft and original documents at least four weeks before you need to make your application. You will need to submit your application at the International Student Support Service enquiry desk, located in the Student Services Centre, Newton building, City Campus (opening hours: 1 pm – 4 pm, Monday to Friday*).

*The team operates longer opening hours at the start of the academic year.
