Welcome to the International Student Team

Please note the International Student Team office will be closed on Friday 18 April and Monday 21 April due to public holidays.

We provide specialist support to students who come from outside the United Kingdom to study at Cambridge and to Cambridge students who study overseas as part of their course.

We specialise in:

  • United Kingdom (UK) immigration and visas for students (including full- and part-time, and visiting students);
  • Visa advice service for students and for staff who look after students;
  • Student mobility, including Erasmus, funding opportunities and information on externally offered international study;
  • Providing links to information for international students through successive stages of their student journey at Cambridge through the International Student Portal.

We are responsible for:

  • Ensuring the collegiate University complies with student immigration, in particular Tier 4 of the UK immigration points based system by setting policies and procedures relevant to student immigration;
  • Maintaining the Tier 4 Licence and Highly Trusted Sponsor licence;
  • Providing visa advice to students and their dependants in accordance with the Code set by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner;
  • Promoting student mobility and administering the Charter awarded to the University from the European Commission to deliver Erasmus;
