Free airport transfer service

We can provide specialist help and advice with most visa and immigration queries, information on working alongside your study, working after completion of your programme plus visa application assistance.  

When preparing for and making your visa application, we can offer a range of support from group webinars prior to coming to Keele to individual guidance via email and virtual appointments.

We are always happy to help with any questions or issues you have regarding immigration and look forward to helping you throughout your time with us. 


In the lead up to the new student intake in January 2024, Immigration Compliance and Advice will be offering regular webinars to assist you in preparing for and making your visa application.  These short webinars will feature a presentation followed by an opportunity to ask general questions. The webinars will take place on Microsoft Teams and registration is required for admission to the webinar.  To register your interest, please click the button below.

As the webinars are open to all students, we won't be able to answer any questions specific to your individual situation, but we can answer general questions that may be beneficial to students in general.

The next webinar will be announced here when it is available.
