Drop-ins and appointments
Student visa extension appointment
These are one hour appointment slots for students to submit a Student visa extension with the help of the Student Immigration Service. Please go to our Student visa extension service web page for more information.
EU Settlement Scheme appointment
If you have any questions about your EU Settlement Scheme application, please book an online advice appointment or attend a drop-in session. An adviser can talk through the requirements with you and discuss any issues you may have. If a longer appointment is needed, the adviser will arrange a time with you and book this for you during the advice appointment/drop-in session.
Drop-in sessions and online advice appointments
Appointment and drop-in slots last 10 minutes. As these are short sessions and we cannot submit a Student visa application during one of these slots. If you need an appointment to extend your Student visa please book a Student visa extension appointment.
Drop-ins and advice appointments are available during the following times:

To attend a drop-in session, please go to Wessex House 8.16 during the session and speak to the staff on the reception desk. They will then book you into the session.
Online advice appointments
Online appointments are only bookable the day before the appointment takes place. Please be aware, the appointments are only 10 minutes in length and the adviser will need to finish the call on time as there will be other students waiting. If more time is needed to address your query, the adviser will ask you to email your questions and may arrange another appointment if necessary.
A Student Immigration Adviser will video call you using Microsoft Teams at the start of your appointment slot. Please make sure you log into Microsoft Teams in good time for the start of your appointment.
If you miss the call, we will try to call you back in the first five minutes of your slot. If you are not able to answer the call during the first five minutes, you will need to book another appointment.
