We provide specialist advice on and are responsible for:

  • Visa applications, both within the UK and outside of the UK
  • Appropriate visas for studying/right to study checks for non-UK/EEA students
  • Visas for travelling in Europe and for attending Graduation
  • Issuing various Student Status Letters for immigration purposes (employment, visas for travelling in Europe and for attending Graduation)
  • All UK visa related matters for current students, including returning students following a break in studies
  • Visas for working in the UK during and after studies
  • Licence Compliance & UK Visas and Immigration Audit

We work closely with the Admissions team to provide immigration advice to new and continuing students at Edinburgh Napier University.

Please note that we are currently experiencing a high volume of requests but hope that we can respond within 5 working days.
