The University's Immigration and Welfare Officer provides specialist support and guidance for the University of Bolton's International students. They can advise or signpost students on a wide range of issues from immigration to personal and welfare matters. If you are experiencing problems which are affecting your studies or overall student experience speak to the Immigration and Welfare Officer as soon as possible.
One to one appointments and regular workshops are available for students who need to apply for a student visa to start a new course or to complete a current course.
Always keep the University up to date with your current contact details, but also remember that if there are any issues or problems with your visa, the UKBA will write to inform you, therefore it is very important that the UKBA have your current address. You can report a change of address to the UKBA using their online form here.
