Maintaining UK Student visa and extension

At Seraphus, we can help you understand how to maintain or extend your UK Student visa successfully.

Maintaining a UK student visa

While you’re studying in the UK on a student visa, it’s important to maintain your visa status. Here are some key points to ensure you do so successfully:

Remember, if you do not meet the terms of your visa, this could lead to severe consequences for you, including deportation from the UK, bans on re-entering the UK, or refusal to extend your student visa or obtain a Graduate visa. If you want to apply for a UK student visa extension in the UK, keep within the rules of your current visa. 

You can extend your Student visa from inside the UK to enable you to pursue further studies. You must have an unconditional offer on a course with an educational provider sponsored by the Home Office. You must also have a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies for the new course which must be at a higher academic level than your current course. Extending a student visa in the UK can be difficult, speak to us if you want to know how to extend your student visa in the UK. 

Graduate Visa

After you have graduated from an undergraduate or postgraduate course you will be able to stay in the UK using a Graduate visa. This is a separate visa status which you will need to apply for before your Student visa expires. The Graduate visa will enable you to look for work and live in the UK for up to two years or three years for PhD graduates.
