Interest free loan

If you're a new or current international employee who'd like support to cover the cost of applications for you and your dependants to live and work in the UK, we might be able to help with an interest free loan. 

Please note: If you're a new or current international member of staff we may cover the cost of your application.  You can find out more on our Immigration Reimbursement Scheme web page.

You can use the loan to help with:

  • Dependant EU Settlement Scheme fees;
  • UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) fees for your Tier 1, Tier 2 and ILR dependants;
  • National Health Service (NHS) healthcare surcharge for you and your dependant(s);
  • UK legal fees for advice on immigration; and
  • UK National Academic Recognition Information Centre (UK NARIC) service fees.  

You can download a guidance document and application form at the bottom of this page.

If you need any additional guidance please contact your local Faculty/Service Human Resources contact who will be more than happy to help, or internationalHR@leeds.ac.uk.
