UWE Bristol International College students

If you are studying a course at UWE Bristol International College (UWEBIC) and moving to your main programme of study within UWE you will need to make an application for a new visa before you can start your new course.

The visa application can be made as soon as you successfully complete your UWEBIC course. Please note: You will not be able to start your studies at UWE Bristol before you have applied for your visa.

Please ensure that you understand the visa requirements of the visa application for your main course before the end of your UWEBIC course, as some of the requirements are time sensitive.

Applying for a new visa

You do not need to wait to be issued a Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) for your main award before you start to prepare your documents for your visa application for your main programme of study.

To apply for your visa please see our advice on applying for a Tier 4 (General) student visa inside the UK.

For all immigration enquiries regarding your visa application please contact the UWE Immigration Advisers.
