We understand that the current situation relating to the Coronavirus pandemic has created many questions about the impact this has on your immigration status in the UK or your ability to obtain a visa to start your course of study.

These pages aim to address the common questions we have received from current international students and those due to start at Imperial in the 2020–212 academic year.

Services in Autumn 2020

We want to reassure you that the International Student Support Service will continue to operate throughout the pandemic.

We're currently planning for partial COVID restrictions, which allows students to be on campus whilst guidelines including face covering, observing social distancing and good hygiene. Under these circumstances, we will offer support remotely to start with. You will still receive the same high quality guidance as before.

Should there be another outbreak of Coronavirus and we have to return to lockdown – full COVID restrictions – we will offer fully remote services.  We will also deploy additional online services and resources to support you.
