International Students

Columbia

Columbia University has an International Student and Scholar Office that assists foreign students with visa issues and other transition questions. The ISSO has compiled a handbook, which provides necessary visa and immigration information for incoming international students.

Students should contact isso@columbia.edu with any additional questions.

LSE

The school’s International Student Visa Advice Team (ISVAT) advises students on visa options while studying at LSE. Guidelines for applying for a Tier 4 Student Visa can be found here (please read all steps carefully). Specific immigration and visa information for double degree students can be found here.

ISVAT holds weekly drop-in sessions at the Student Services Counter for students who have queries that are not covered on their website. Students in need of individual advice can arrange one-on-one appointments. The center also offers detailed, up-to-date immigration information on their website. These are complimented by regular Tier 4 Visa advice sessions on applying to and extending ones stay in the UK.

Additional visa and immigration resources

The Students' Union Advice Centre offers advice to students on amending mistakes in the end date of your visa or on Tier 1 Post Study Work. 

Information can also be found at the website of the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA). They have an advice line from Monday to Friday, 1-4 pm GMT (+44 (0)20 7107 9922)
