If you are still in University accommodation, someone should have contacted you to discuss your circumstances and to help you with any requirements you should have.  We have written to all International students to ensure that everyone knows how to access support.  If you would like to ask for someone to contact you please complete the form at www.wlv.ac.uk/welfare

We offer a hardship fund, which is additional money to help you if you are struggling to pay bills or if you are caring for a relative.  You can apply through eVision under My Study – Course - Finance – Scholarships and Bursaries – Apply to the Dennis Turner Opportunity Fund. 

We are also working closely with our local community partners, for example, through the University’s Sikh and Panjabi Centre, to support and stay connected with students who are still in the UK.

We will continue to support you and will be in touch through your UNIVERSITY EMAIL ADDRESS and any UK telephone number (Landline or Mobile number) that you have provided us with.

You should continue to engage online with your tutors

The Home Office have now confirmed that attending remotely will temporarily be acceptable under Tier 4. As the University has postponed all face to face teaching, you will need to demonstrate your attendance in the following ways:

  • Undergraduate and Postgraduate taught students must engage with their studies through Canvas, including submitting any assignments. You must access course materials at least once per week during term time.
  • Postgraduate Research students will still need to meet with their supervisory teams at least once a month, but this can now be through telephone, video-call, or email. Your supervisor will still log these meetings.

The government has released a statement confirming people in this position will be able to extend their visas until 31 May 2020. Please contact visa-enquiries@wlv.ac.uk for more guidance on how to do this.

Full guidance for those affected by changes to UK immigration and borders due to COVID-19 can be found at www.gov.uk/government/collections/coronavirus-covid-19-immigration-and-borders.

This guidance includes the latest information for those of you who might have questions around visa expiry, switching visa category within the UK, distance learning and working-hour restrictions for student doctors and nurses. If you have concerns about your visa status you should email the Government’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) Immigration Help Centre at CIH@homeoffice.gov.uk

If you are an International student and you have returned home, the University has endeavoured to put in place support and resources to ensure that that your studies will not be adversely affected.

The International Office here at the University of Wolverhampton will be hosting a series of virtual Q&A sessions for prospective international students. We understand that this is a difficult time with lots of uncertainties due to the pandemic. This is an opportunity to speak to your international officer for your country and our international ambassadors. During the session you will be able to find out about our September 2020 progammes, fees and scholarships, entry requirements and much more.
