Attending Graduation

I still have a Tier 4 visa

Students who have a valid Tier 4 visa and have completed their course when expected are able to re-enter the UK on their Tier 4 visa as long as they carry a copy of their Graduation letter in their hand luggage to show at immigration if asked. It is also advisable to carry a copy of your onward flight tickets to show that you will be leaving the UK before your visa expires.

If you have completed your course early and have left the UK, please contact the International Student Support Office by emailing SID@exeter.ac.uk for advice, before you travel to the UK on your Tier 4 visa.

My Tier 4 visa has expired

Students whose Tier 4 visa has expired will need to apply for a Standard Visitor Visa to come to the UK to attend their graduation ceremony. The graduation letter will also need to be included in the visa application.
