Special word about students with visas

The University is now asked to advise the UK Borders Agency if any student with a visa goes missing unexpectedly for more than ten days. The University has set up a Points Based Immigration Office to deal with this (contact Catherine Fage at the Board of Graduate Studies).  If your student with a visa goes missing for more than one week please let the Postgradate Office (Meg Staff) know.

Students doing PhD’s are required to report to their colleges to have their documents checked at the start and end of every term. Students doing MPhils have in addition to report to the Graduate Office in mid term and at the end of their course.

Students whose pre-existing visas are lapsing will now need ATAS clearance in order to get visa renewal.

PIs - PhD projects please.

"PhD projects please:
We will be placing PhD Project advertisements on ‘’ during the next few weeks.  If you are considering taking a student, could you please supply a project title, 5 key words and a short description of the project (300 words or less).  Please include the skills that will be gained by the student.  Don’t worry if the project doesn’t yet have funding as we will be looking into their funding situation before inviting candidates to interview.
A prompt email response to Fiona Roby would be very much appreciated."
