Doctorate Extension Scheme workshops for PhD students

Posted on Updated on

VC Prof Chris Brink with StudentsSome good news! We are introducing a new one hour visa workshop this year targeted at PhD students.

Understanding the Doctorate Extension Scheme – for PhD students on a Tier 4 visa who would like to stay in the UK after their course ends

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 to this workshop to find out more about how this visa extension works and how you can apply for it before your PhD comes to an end. The Visa Team and the Careers Service will be working together to deliver the workshop and ensure you have all the information you need to make an effective application at the right time.

The workshop will run 4 times during this academic year. You don’t need to book in advance, just turn up!
