Applying for another country's visa or staying in another country has no bearing on your UK visa. The only thing to check is whether your university has any expected "contacts" with you during the period you are away. Even if they do, this is highly likely to be acceptable by phone or email.jashbgreke wrote: ↑Mon Feb 03, 2020 9:58 pmI'm a bit worried that if I apply for a German visa and leave the country before the course end date will threaten my status as a UK resident. I don't intend to apply for a UK work visa after, I just don't want to risk losing my Tier IV status and then not get my diploma.
