At the end of your studies, you may wish to stay on for work or for further study.
If you wish to make changes to your programme of study, you may need to go home and apply for a new Tier 4 visa before you can make the change.
You can change your programme in the UK without needing to apply for a new visa if:
- You are changing to the same level, or a higher level of study at the same institution; AND
- You can complete your new programme within the validity of your current visa; AND
- Your new programme represents academic progression from your previous programme.
Our Immigration team provide information on this here:
You must be careful that you do not overstay - for further information on overstaying, please visit:
