Applying for a Student visa should be fairly straight forward as long as you are prepared. Click on one of the links below for information about how to apply under the Student visa route and what it means to hold a Student visa.
The Student visa is for full-time long term study in the UK
The Student visa is the only visa that is specifically for full-time long term study in the UK.
We expect the majority of overseas students will need to obtain this visa. However, a number of different visas will still allow you to study in the UK, though these visas will have been obtained for a main reason other than study. If you already have one of these visas, you may be able to choose to study using this visa.
If you do, you should ensure that you are still able to meet the conditions your visa was issued for.
If you are not able to show a valid visa that enables you to study, UCL will not be able to allow you to enrol. Examples of other visas you can study on are:
- PBS dependant
- Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme
- Skilled Worker visa (part-time study)
- Ancestry visa
- Tier 1 Investor
- EU settled status or pre-settled status
