Visas for UK
If you are coming to study with us from other countries, you may need to apply for a visa. You can check this from this link: https://www.gov.uk/check-uk-visa. The UK has a long tradition of welcoming students from overseas and currently issues about 200,000 study visas each year.
There are different types of visas depending on your age and the length of your course. If you are applying for a course of less than six months then you can now study on a standard visitor visa:
Students studying with us on English language courses can stay for up to 11 months. For these courses, you need to apply for a short term study visa to study English: https://www.gov.uk/visa-to-study-english
