An introduction to our Student Immigration and Funding team
Whether you have already arrived at Cranfield or are looking at starting a course in the future there are many aspects of your journey to a Cranfield degree we may be able to help with.
Student Immigration and Funding are here for all of your funding and visa needs. Before you arrive it is important to thoroughly research these important steps. Please consult the Cranfield University website for exciting opportunities through the Funding Finder – did you know every course page on the site has a ‘Fees and Funding’ section where the most relevant options for this course are listed? Similarly don’t miss our page on visas and immigration which has step by step guides to your student visa application or the EU Settlement Scheme.
We help many students after they have arrived and started a course. Whether that be to extend a visa, change visa category, complete your studies early or change your course, we are here to help. We can also advise on StartUp visas, the new Graduate Route visa, as well as the Schengen visa. Come to see us if you have a student loan and need to make changes to your study. We also look after funding for student mobility such as Erasmus+ and Santander Mobility Awards. If we can’t answer your question, we will always try our best to point you in the right direction!
We understand that arriving to a new place can be very daunting and you may have queries about your visa such as how many hours you are eligible to work or if you can travel to another country. As a Student visa holder, it is your responsibility to ensure that you comply with the terms of your stay in the UK. However, the Student Immigration and Funding team will help you if you are unsure of any of the requirements. During registration, you all should have received a guide to your Student visa responsibilities and some of you may even have seen us make a short presentation.
Whilst it is an exciting period, there is one important thing we would like to make you all aware of; unfortunately, scammers claiming to be the UKVI or other government bodies are targeting international students across the UK. They take a very threatening tone and quite commonly refer to paperwork that you have not completed and if you do not pay a fine, they will immediately come to take you away. Government authorities would never call and ask for money so if you receive a call of this nature hang up immediately and contact us. The UK Government has advice on their website to avoid fraud, tricks and scams.
We are based in Building 45, across from the Sports Centre and, once Covid lockdown is lifted, are open 9am-5pm (Mon-Thurs) and 9am-4:30pm (Fri). You can also contact us for visa questions via email: email@example.com or skype: studentimmigration1. You can contact us for scholarship or loan queries via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or skype: studentfunding1
Throughout the year you can check our blog for updates on hot topics and these will include information about any events or workshops we will be holding. We will also share lots of information for international students interested in applying to come and study next year including guidance for visa applications, getting your CAS and applying for ATAS.
