Student Immigration Team (Advice)

Details of when the Student Immigration Advisers are available to see students

Immigration advice in the UK is regulated by the OISC (Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner). The Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 made it unlawful for anyone to provide unregulated immigration advice or immigration services.

The Student Immigration Advisers, part of the Student Immigration Team (Advice), are specifically trained to supply immigration advice and guidance to staff and students, in accordance with OISC regulations.

The rules relating to immigration and visas are complicated, and are subject to change. It is important that students and staff get the right advice so always refer immigration matters to the Student Immigration  Advisers.

Guidelines for the provision of immigration advice within the University of Hertfordshire can be found on our  StudyNet page.

Adviser availability

**PLEASE NOTE** - Due to the current Covid-19 outbreak and to ensure compliance with the Government social distancing rules, the  Student Immigration Advisers are only contactable via email at this time, until further notice.

Student Immigration Advisers are only permitted to offer immigration advice within their areas of competence. There are certain areas, including asylum and settlement that they are unable to offer any immigration guidance on. If you have  an urgent immigration question then advice and information are available from other sources:

We have put together some handy induction guides for you  on our Studynet pages - we would strongly encourage all new international students to watch them, so that you understand the different conditions of your visa and how you can remain compliant with your visa conditions.   Look under the section called 'Welcome to UH' for the induction guides.

'Introduction to the Student Immigration Team (SIT)' is a brief overview of both the Advice & Compliance teams, and highlights some of the ways that the teams can support you with immigration matters.

'Immigration Matters' has been split into 3 bitesize sections (you'll need to watch all 3 to get the complete guide).  This guide aims to to show you why visa compliance is so important, both for you and the University.
