Student Immigration Team (Advice)

The Student Immigration Team (Advice) is responsible for supporting overseas students during their stay in the UK, including immigration, employment and personal matters

**For information regarding BRPs, please click here **

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 in Appendix A

The University's Codes of Practice provides additional information to applicants and students sponsored by the University of Hertfordshire under Home Office Student regulations.
