If you are travelling from outside the United Kingdom to attend a graduation ceremony then you may require a visa. The Imperial College London Student Hub can assist with specific visa enquiries.

Letters to support your Visa application

We cannot issue a visa letter for you unless you have completed registration to confirm your attendance.

The Graduation Team can produce a letter in support of visa applications for you, which can be requested through the registration portal, when you sign up.

You will need the following information:

Full name
Date of birth
Passport number
Full degree title
Ceremony time

  • Please do not use block capitals
  • Ensure you have to hand your CID number and passport number

Failure to supply all the requested information may result in a delay in the issuing of your visa support letter. Please allow seven working days for the issue of any visa letter.

Please note that visa letters are sent to the email address provided in PDF format. If you wish to request a hard copy of the letter please email the team. Please note that international postage of the hardcopy letter may take over two weeks.
