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.
