Visa

If you are an international student, you may need to apply for a Standard Visitor visa. Find out more about visa requirements.

Visa support letter

We can provide you with a visa support letter to support your visa application if you need one.

This letter states that providing your award is confirmed, you will be eligible to attend your graduation ceremony. The letter will include the date of your ceremony. We are unable to specify your guests' names in the letter, however, the letter will state that you have two guest tickets to the ceremony. 

How to get a support letter

If you need a letter, email graduation-office@bristol.ac.uk and give the following information:

  • your name
  • student number
  • postal address (although we will send the letter to you by email).

We will only be able to provide you with a letter after you have completed registration

If you have any further visa queries please contact the University's international student advisers at student-visa-advice@bristol.ac.uk.
