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: Your visa application fee may be covered by our Immigration Reimbursement Scheme.

You can use the loan to help with:

  • UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) fees for Global Talent, Tier 2/Skilled Worker and ILR dependents;
  • UKVI fees for your own dependent/spouse visa;
  • National Health Service (NHS) healthcare surcharge for you and your dependent(s);
  • UK legal fees for advice on immigration; and
  • UK National Academic Recognition Information Centre (UK NARIC) service fees.  

You can download our 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 email
