Visas and Immigration
As an international student coming to the UK you will probably be required to apply for a student visa, as part of the application process, the CAVC international team can advise you on the most suitable visa for your chosen programme of study.
International students coming to the UK for over 6 months to study full-time must apply for a student visa. This is called a Tier 4 Student Visa, and criteria are set by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI)
A short-term study visa can be a useful option for a non-EEA national coming to the UK to study a full-time or part-time course lasting no more than six months. If you want to study an English language programme that lasts longer than six months you can also use this route to remain in the UK for up to 11 months.
