Extending a UK visa in your country

Current students that are returning home during vacation periods can apply for a new visa if their current visa is due to expire. This is not known as an extension application. It is in effect a new Entry Clearance application, therefore students should follow the advice for new applications (see "applying").

Please remember that you will need to have a Confirmation of Acceptance for Study issued before you can make a visa application. Please contact the International Student Adviser at
