Appointments on advice sessions are allocated 15 minutes. Where your query is more complex, we can book you an individual appointment with International Student Support to see an adviser.

* Occasionally, we need to change times of advice sessions on some days. You will be informed if you have been booked a slot that is different to the times above. We do sometimes have to cancel sessions, so we advise you to contact us to book a space on a session in advance.

Where you wish to have your visa application checked you must book a visa extension appointment.
