As a Tier 4 student, the University of Edinburgh is the sponsor of your UK visa.
The University has a number of legal duties to manage our sponsorship of your visa.
As a student with a Tier 4 visa sponsored by the University of Edinburgh, the terms of your visa require you to, (amongst others):
Please note that any email relating to your Tier 4 sponsorship, including census dates and times, will be sent to your University email address – you should therefore check this regularly.
When participating in a project or other placement we expect you to be on your project full-time and you should maintain good communication with your supervisor.
Students who are required to leave University locations for any reason, including projects or placements, should complete a Leave of Absence form in conjunction with their Supervisor and Programme Director including a timeline of communication points. These will be monitored and used as attendance checkpoints.
