- Working Letters - a letter outlining where your employer can find the term dates and working restrictions that apply to you. This is part of the Right to Work check an employer must do before you start working for them. You can produce your working letter yourself (as a PDF which can be downloaded) by going to: bristol.ac.uk/produce-letters-and-documents or clicking the button below. We recommend printing a copy of the term/vacation dates from the University website to submit to your employer with the letter. Please note, the letters are final and won't be edited to an employer's request. For more info on your working restrictions please visit this webpage.
- Placement Letters - a letter outlining that your work placement is an integral and assessed part of your course. This is part of the Right to Work check an employer must do before you start your work placement. We will also notify UKVI that you are starting your work placement.

- Highly likely to complete Letters - a letter you will need to give your new university if you are in the UK and applying for a new Student visa to start a new course, before you have completed your course at the University of Bristol. Providing you meet our eligibility criteria (usually successfully completing all taught elements of the course), we will issue you with a letter confirming that you are highly likely to complete your course, to demonstrate academic progression when you apply for your next visa. If you are starting a new course at the University of Bristol, please contact the Visa Advisers.
- Please note, we do not provide letter to support Schengen visa applications such as 'no objection certificates/letters'
Please contact us in good time to request your letter as it can take up to five working days to receive this. We will send the letter to you, for you to give to your employer or your new university.
To request a placement or highly likely to complete letter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
