You may need to extend your visa by applying for the 'new Points-Based System' Student visa Route if you are:
- A continuing LSBU student and you need to extend your visa to complete your studies
- A new student to LSBU who is already in the UK
You will be granted a visa to allow you to complete your course.
We would strongly advise you to book an appointment with the Immigration and International Student Advice team to see an adviser before you submit your application so that they can check your form and supporting documents.
When to apply:
We would advise you to start preparing your documents at least six weeks before your visa expires, but it is a good idea to start preparing as early as possible. It is essential that you submit your application before your current visa expires. Applicants who submit their application on time may be given the right to submit an Administrative Review if their application is refused. If you apply late you may not be allowed to study and you will have no right to challenge the refusal.
