Our staff are not able to handle specific enquiries related to visas beyond the information provided on this website. The US Embassy in London or your home country is the official source of information on visas.


Information is available on the US Embassy in London website, including student visa FAQs. Alternatively you may call the US Embassy at 020 3608 6998 (Operator Assisted £1.20/minute) between the hours of 7 am - 7 pm Monday - Friday. You may also visit the Department of Homeland Security's Study in the States website.


Please note that the US university or sponsoring agency (for J-1 visas) should also be able to provide you with assistance on the paperwork and details of the visa application process upon your admittance to the programme. Therefore, you may wish to direct your enquiries to the appropriate member of staff, such as an international students advisor or programme coordinator.
