UK visa requirements for students are dependent on three factors: the student’s nationality, how long they want to study for and which course they want to take.
LanguageUK is accredited by Accreditation UK. This means we can support your entry to the UK to learn English for courses with a maximum duration of 11 months. There are different requirements depending on where you come from (your nationality), how long the English language course is, and your personal circumstances. You may need:
- A letter from us to show border control officials that you are coming to the UK to learn English for fewer than 6 months, or
- A Standard Visitor visa, or
- A Short-term study visa
Everyone is allowed to study in the UK for up to six months as a visitor. This means many students can study without a visa and some nationalities need to apply for a Standard Visitor visa.
