Re-sitting out of attendance - returning to take your exams

If we decide you are ‘resitting out of attendance’, Queen Mary will report the withdrawal of sponsorship of your Student Visa to the UK Government. The report to the UK Government may result in the curtailment of your Student visa. For more information about curtailment and reporting, please see this guidance from the QMUL Advice and Counselling Service.

If you do not pass one or more exams in May or June and we allow you a further attempt in August, we will not withdraw sponsorship of your Student Visa unless you also do not pass that/those exams in August and we decide that you are ‘resitting out of attendance’.

Due to the disruption caused by the Coronavirus Pandemic, we will sponsor students to return to the UK to undertake re-sits or first-sits of assessments where these are scheduled to be taken or submitted within an examination period. We will sponsor your immigration permission for the duration of the relevant examination period. If you are in this position, you can request a CAS.

Please note: if the relevant examination period begins more than 28 days after your current visa expires, you will need to return home to submit your immigration application.
