Ways to apply
There are 2 main ways that students make a Studet Route visa extension application from inside the UK:
- You can post your application yourself.
- You can book an in person appointment at a UKVI Public Enquiry Office (PEO). To book an appointment please visit the UKVI Public Enquiry Offices web pages. The appointment must be before your visa expires and it is essential to book in advance as appointments fill up quickly.
The UKVI are strict about the documents they will accept as evidence. Your documents will need to meet the UKVI requirements or your application can be refused. We recommend you read the information below and prepare your documents, then allow ISAS to check them for you.
We have listed the main types of document that you will need. There may be others, so check the UKVI webpages to ensure you have all of the documents needed to make your application. Please check that you have the following original documents
All documents must be originals
Low-risk countries and documents to submit
If you are from a low-risk country you should still collect all the evidence listed above. However if you are self-submitting a postal application you won't need to submit academic qualifications or financial evidence with your application. Instead, the UKVI can ask for it when it is processing your visa application.
If you are asked for this evidence while your application is being processed, you will be given a deadline by which to provide it. If you fail to provide the documents when they are asked for, your visa application will be refused.
If you will attend an appointment with the UKVI, or want ISAS to send your application you must provide all the documents.
Which countries are low-risk?
The low risk countries are listed on the UKCISA visa page.
