Graduands and guests may be travelling from outside the EU to attend the graduation ceremonies and may require a visa to enter the United Kingdom.

We can provide you with a letter confirming that you have been invited to attend the graduation ceremony and that you are able to bring guests with you.

You are advised to check first with the British Embassy in your home country to ascertain whether such a letter is required.

Please note that:

  • the request for a visa letter must come from the student invited to attend
  • students can only request a letter once they have received a confirmation of their ceremony booking.
  • we are unable to specify guest names or details
  • this form is not suitable for students wishing to extend their own visa. Students wishing to apply for such an extension should visit the School's Student Services Advice and Engagement webpages for further information.
