Will students unable to graduate be able to extend their visas? What about time limits on study?
The Home Office have not yet confirmed this, however they have stated that they will keep the situation under review, particularly where a potential repeat of a period of study is necessary. This suggests that additional periods of leave to remain will granted to allow repeat study. We have no indication of whether the Home Office will extend time limits of study where exceptional circumstances exist. This is something we expect the Home Office to clarify as it becomes clearer how long students’ study will be delayed by the crisis.
