Tier 4 and Student visa holdersWithdraw

You have been directed to this page because an Exam Board has made the decision to withdraw you from study or you have voluntarily withdrawn from study.    The following information will help you understand the next steps in relation to your University registration and the implications on your Tier 4 visa.

What should I do now?

Your Tier 4 or Student visa

Our Visa Compliance Team will contact you to let you know that they will make a report to UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) to let them know about your new academic status.  UKVI will take action to curtail (shorten) your visa - normally they will give you a new visa expiry date of 60 days after the date that the Visa Compliance Team made their report.


You must immediately cease all engagement in study;  this includes attendance at classes, laboratories and tutorials


You must immediately stop working if you have a job

Leaving the UK

It is important that you make plans to leave the UK as soon as possible and before the end of the 60 day period;  remaining in the UK beyond this date could result in serious restrictions being placed on future visa applications to the UK.
