Your immigration status
If you are sponsored by the University, either under Tier 4 or the new Student Route (from 01/01/2021), you must ensure that you engage fully with your studies. As an immigration sponsor, the University is required to monitor your attendance and engagement throughout your course. This includes, attending online and in person teaching, meeting with your supervisor (PhD/Masters), attending exams and work placements as well as submitting coursework.
Please ensure you contact your department if you aren’t able to engage or attend during your course and request authorised absence if appropriate. Our International Services team will contact you if you aren’t engaging to discuss this with you, it’s important that you respond promptly.
Please be aware that failure to engage and attend could mean that we have to withdraw our immigration sponsorship and your Tier 4/Student visa would be cancelled by the Home Office.
Read our immigration pages for more information about your responsibilities.
