Understanding the Doctorate Extension Scheme for PhD Students

Date/Time: 18 November 2019, 13:00-14:00

Venue: King's Gate 1.20

This workshop is intended for PhD students who are close to finishing their PhD (for example once you have submitted your thesis prior to viva).

If you are currently studying for a PhD on a Tier 4 visa, you can apply for the Doctorate Extension Scheme to stay in the UK for 12 months after your course has ended. You can use the 12 months to gain further experience in your chosen field, seek skilled work, or develop plans to set up your own business.

Come along to this workshop delivered by the Visa team to find out more about how this visa extension works and how you can apply for it before your PhD comes to an end.

We want our services to be accessible to our students and graduates. Please get in touch if you have any specific requirements e.g. an alternative format, communication support, or other adjustment, in order to access our workshop/event.
