Our support service

Our dedicated International Student Support team is made up of experienced advisers who can help and advise you on a variety of subjects, including immigration, visa applications, working in the UK during and after your studies and personal and welfare matters.

Support is provided to applicants, students and recent graduates.

The team is also responsible for the Overseas Students Orientation Programme as well as organising social activities and trips throughout the year to enhance the international student experience.

As an international student sponsored by the University under Tier 4 leave, it is extremely important that you comply with the conditions and responsibilities associated with Tier 4 sponsorship.

Our Tier 4 Compliance team ensures that there is a strong partnership between the University of Hertfordshire and you, our Tier 4 students. The team is available here to help with any problems or queries you have regarding your immigration conditions and responsibilities and how to remain compliant.

Immigration advice

Immigration advice in the UK is regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) and the International Student Advisers are specifically trained to supply immigration advice and guidance to staff and students in accordance with these regulations.

Their advice is free.

The International Student Advisers can provide support to guide students through the visa application process including applying for or extending your Tier 4 visa, or applying for the Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur or Doctorate Extension Scheme.

For those students applying for their Tier 4 visa from within the UK, the International Student Advisers run regular visa workshops to help you complete the on-line visa application and will also check your application and supporting documents.
