Student visas and travel

Information on student visas

As of the 5 October 2020, the Tier 4 visa route that was used by international students to study in the UK was replaced by a new visa route called “Student visa”.  This will be required by new international applicants to our courses who want to join us.

If you require a Student visa, please apply for your chosen course as early as you can as it can take up to three months to secure a Student visa.  The process for applying for a Student Visa can only begin once you have been made and accepted an Unconditional offer of study.

Please see the most up to date information on the UK Government’s Student visa pages.

We strongly advise that you keep up to date with the rules and regulations via the UKVI website. The UK Visas and Immigration website has a lot of information for international students. 

If you require further information about our visa process, please contact our overseas student office.

Please note: If you hold a current Tier 4 visa it remains valid and continues with exactly the same conditions and rights as before.
