Our Student Immigration Team can give advice to help you prepare your visa application correctly and it is important that you are aware of proposed changes which may apply when you come to submit your visa application.

If you registered with the Police during the year then your certificate will be ready for collection from Police Scotland in Stirling. You should have received an email asking you to collect your certificate and instructions on when/where to collect - please do this as soon as possible.
During the summer months border control areas in the UK will see a sizeable increase in passenger traffic as families, school trips and students take advantage of some time off to travel abroad.
Passenger education is a proven way to reduce long queues, waiting times and the resultant complaints they can bring. UK Border Force has therefore developed a GOV.uk page explicitly designed to educate and prepare passengers for their arrival at the UK border.
If you are planning to travel this summer we recommend you read this information.
