Visa is limited by time. When time comes, you can only renew your visa or leave the UK. Then how can international students renew their visa? Next, let’s review the renewal of the contract.
I. what situation should I renew
If you want to continue to study other courses in the UK after you have completed or graduated from the UK, you need to renew your visa, because your visa generally only covers the length of courses you need to study when applying for a visa, which is not a long-term visa For international students, they need to take formal courses after finishing the language course, but the visa time is usually one month longer than your course time, so this situation also needs to be renewed
II. Renewal method
1. Renewal through school
This is the most convenient way for students to renew their contracts.
this is because many schools in the UK consider that it is more difficult for students to renew their contracts. In order to make it more convenient for students, now students can contact the immigration office to help them renew their contracts.
This way is not only easy, but also relatively safe. I suggest you all choose this way to renew your contract
2. Face to face
Face to face is a common way.
if you choose this way, you need to make an appointment in advance. It’s better to make an appointment at the immigration office within four weeks before the expiration date
Mailing is one of the most troublesome ways.
if you want to renew your visa in this way, you should remember to send your renewal application to the immigration department with special delivery before your visa expires
III. what materials are needed for renewal
1. There are some differences between the renewal process and the process of coming to the UK at the beginning, that is, you need to provide proof that you have studied in the UK for a period of time
2. There is no difference between other materials and those prepared before studying abroad. All of them are based on transcripts, diplomas, etc. the only difference is that students do not need to provide TB certificates anymore
IV. renewal date:
Generally, renewal is done three months before the expiration date.
if you are in a language class, as long as the deposit you have prepared is enough for one month, you’d better renew it as soon as you get CAS, and don’t renew it until it’s about to expire, otherwise the Immigration Bureau may send you back to China.
In addition, if some materials are too late to prepare, you can write an explanation letter to explain what materials you lack and when you will make up for them.
Where to renew
In fact, it’s almost the same in the UK or at home. It depends on which form you use.
if you’re in the UK, it’s better to apply in the UK.
if you’re in China, it’s actually the same as re applying for a visa, so it will take more time in the process.
