Getting in touch


There's a number of ways to access the Immigration Advisory Service. We offer workshops, drop-in sessions, individual appointments, email advice and we also host a series of immigration web chats and webinars throughout the year.

Email us

You can contact us by emailing immigration ( We usually reply on the same day ( Monday to Friday). Try to tell us your name and student ID number when emailing us so that we can find your details.

Immigration drop-in sessions

If you are inside the UK and have a quick visa query, you can attend one of our drop-ins which take place in G16 Deptford Town Hall. You do not need to book, and it's helpful if you can bring your current passport and visa to the session.

They take place every Wednesday afternoon, between 2pm and 3pm in Deptford Town Hall, just report to security upon arrival and ask for the Immigration Advisory Service.

There will not be any sessions when Goldsmiths is closed, so check the term dates if you are unsure.

The Immigration Advisory Service is based in room G16, Deptford Town Hall, so if you need to speak to us outside of the drop in times, and you can't email us, you are welcome to drop by between 9am and 5pm to speak to a member of the team.


We offer a number of workshops during the year. We usually offer sessions covering:

  • The Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur scheme (read more about this on our Working After Your Studies webpage)
  • Extending your Tier 4 visa
  • Working in the UK during your studies and
  • Working in the UK after your studies

Immigration web chats

We offer a number of visa web chats throughout the year, so you can sign up to ask us any questions about applying for a Tier 4 student visa.  The webchats are for students based outside of the UK. We will list the dates of these in February 2018.

Just visit the webchat pages to take part. You don't need to sign up, just visit the page shortly before the start of any chat session to see the live chat session details.
