If you are intending to take authorised leave it is important that you obtain permission from the University in order to ensure that any reporting to the UK Visas and Immigration is accurate.
One of the conditions of your visa is that you are engaged in full-time study whilst you are in the UK. Any periods of absence from the University must be authorized. Anyone requiring International Authorised Leave, needs to fully complete the form below including dates and reasons for the request. Please note that by completing this form it does not mean your Leave has been approved.
Once the form has been submitted, a member of the International Student Support team will contact either your Award Leader or your PhD Supervisor who will assess the request and make a decision whether to approve or reject your request. If the request is rejected, the International Student Support team will contact you to offer further advice and guidance relating to this issue. If your request is approved, you will receive an email confirming this and asking you to proceed to book your flights. These flights must correspond with the dates you have stated on your IAL form.
Once your flights are booked, you must email the copy of the flight tickets to IAL@staffs.ac.uk. On receipt of the flight tickets, the International Student Support team will authorise your leave and email you with a certificate confirming the approval of the leave. You must carry this with you when you travel. Only when you have received the certificate is your leave approved and authorised. If you fail to submit your flight tickets your leave will not be authorised and you risk withdrawal from the University if you travel.
Should you have further questions regarding this procedure, please contact us either by email ISA@staffs.ac.uk / telephone 01782 29 4539 / 4639 / 4711 or by calling into the Student Hub in the Science Centre building and asking to speak to an International Student Advisor.
