Visa & International Student Advice


 Who are we and what do we do?

 The Visa & International Student Advice Team offers advice and guidance to all King’s international students. Whether you're thinking of coming to King’s, already have an offer to study with us, or are a current student, we are here for you throughout your student journey.

Before you begin on your course, we provide advice, information, and outreach sessions related to Student and other visa types. We can also help you navigate any changes to your personal circumstances throughout your time at King’s where they may impact on your visa status. Whether that be changing a visa, extending your studies, interrupting or withdrawal. We also offer advice about visa options after you have completed your studies.  

We are also here to support and advocate on your behalf when required, and if we are the most appropriate team to do so. If the expertise you need sits with another team or agency, we will help you to get you appropriate support.
