The UK student visa (Tier 4 study visa) allows non-EEA citizens to study in the UK. The country is recognised as having some of the world's best colleges and universities.

If your course is under 6 months, you may instead enter the UK on a visitor visa however you will not be able to work in this case.

Requirements Overview

  • Enrollment in an educational course by a provider authorised to provide education to international students;
  • English language ability - you can speak, read, write and understand English;
  • Sufficient funds - you have enough money to support yourself and and pay for your course.
  • Country of citizenship - you are from a country that’s not in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland.

When to Apply & Visa Duration

Generally, you have to apply for your UK student visa 3 months before your educational course starts. You are allowed to enter the country up to a month earlier if your course is longer than 6 months. If the course is less than 6 months in duration, you are allowed to enter the UK 1 week prior the start of the course. The duration of the visa depends on the course you are enrolling in, but will generally allow enough time for you to leave the country - up to a month after the course finishes.
