    I am an international student, and I need a tier 4 student visa to study the course I have been enrolled in. I am making my visa application and I have figured most of the questions out. However, I am highly puzzled about the question that states: "how long do you intend to stay in UK"?

    Now the duration of study program is exactly one year. I am looking forward to stay longer than 1 year. So is it appropriate to seek visa for time duration longer than the study course. I am looking forward to request a visa for 18 months so that I can comfortably attend my graduation ceremony 4 months later without applying another new visa for the purpose.

    Any kind of help will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks )

    With a Tier 4 visa I think you're only allowed to stay for the length of your course + 4 months, which would be 16 months in total; in which case this is what you should request.

    There's a more detailed guide at http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/internat...m-overseas.pdf.

    If you're still unsure, you could contact the International Office at the University directly at: http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/internat.../contacts.aspx
