All Tier 4 visa extension applications from inside the UK should now be made on-line. Please contact ISAO for further information.
Students due to complete their PhD programme within 60 days, can now apply for a visa extension under the Doctorate Extension Scheme. This allows students one year to remain in the UK to find work with a Tier 2 employer, set up as an entrepreneur, or to gain practical work experience in their field. It will operate within Tier 4, reflecting the fact that it is a sponsored scheme offering an extension of leave to existing students.
