In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, UK Visas & Immigration has now released some important information for international students to be aware of.

COVID-19: Effects on international students in the UK

Coronavirus

Whether you are in the UK on a Tier 4 Student Visa or a Short-term Study Visa, these are uncertain times for all students. UK Visas & Immigration has acknowledged that this is an unprecedented circumstance and that many things are currently out of students' control. As such, they have released some guidance and resources for students who may find themselves in a difficult situation, such as: 

  • Unable to return to home country due to border closures and/or lack of flight availability
  • Unable to travel due to self-isolation and illness
  • Visa is about to expire and unable to leave the UK due to border closures and/or lack of flight availability

If you find yourself in any of these situations, please read through this Coronavirus Factsheet (PDF, .4MB) and then visit the Home Office website for more detailed information. 

As always, you can also contact visa@yorksj.ac.uk if you want to discuss your situation with one of our Visa & Compliance Team.
