Visas and Immigration

This section of our website is designed for non-EU/EEA/Swiss nationals.  If you are not from an EU/EEA country or Switzerland, then you will be subject to immigration control and you should read these pages carefully.

Our immigration advice and services are carried out in accordance with the UKCISA Codes of Ethics and regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC).  The OISC regulations cover the management structures, casework procedure and standards of service required to operate at each of the competence levels.

The guidance gives basic information on UK immigration procedures and also provides links to other websites such as:

UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI) department of Home Office
UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA)
Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) 

For a summary of visas and the points based system, please see our leaflet below:

The information in these sections is given in good faith and has been carefully checked.  Queen's University Belfast accepts no legal responsibility for its accuracy.
