Visa Advice and Appointments during peak period

The University of Edinburgh offers an Advice clinic for any problems with Student Visas.  The peak visa application period runs from September to January. We  will try to assist as many students as we possibly can however, there is a limit to the number of appointments we have available. Therefore during this time, we prioritise appointment availability according to your visa expiry date.

If you have a general immigration question, as opposed to needing an appointment to hand in a completed visa application, visit the Student Immigration Service contact page.
