Accessing advice when your institution is closed

20 December 2012

If you require legal advice during the Christmas holiday period and your International Student Adviser is unavailable, you may need to seek assistance from someone else. If you are instructing a solicitor you should ensure that they belong to the appropriate professional body in

England and Wales,

Scotland or

Northern Ireland.

Depending on your financial circumstances, you may qualify for free legal help; you can search for a legal aid provider in

England and Wales,

Scotland or

Northern Ireland.

If you seek immigration advice from an adviser who is not a solicitor you should check that they are regulated by the OISC.
