The IAS Visa Wizard is the easy way to find the correct visa for you
If you are a non-EEA national and are looking to study in the UK for a temporary period, you can apply for a Student Visitor Visa. This visa is officially known as a Short-Term Study Visa.
This type of visa falls under the Standard Visitor Visa category of the UK visas. It allows you to study at a registered UK institution for a maximum period of six months or under. If you are looking to study in the UK as an international student for a period longer than six months, you must apply for a Tier 4 Student Visa instead. This type of Study Visa is measured under the points-based system.
If you need advice about your individual situation, our expert immigration lawyers can help. Our team of lawyers will advise on your eligibility for a Student Visitor Visa, discuss the documentary requirements and provide full legal representation throughout your application. As part of our service, we will also produce a Letter of Representation. This letter details the merits of your case, references your supporting documentation and cites relevant UK law. We will also perform a full document check and ensure that your Student Visitor Visa application is completed to the highest standard. Contact us for more information about your specific queries or application for a Short-Term Study Visa.
To apply for this visa category you must:
Yes, if you want to study in the UK for more than six months you must apply under the Tier 4 (General) category of the points-based system.
This visa allows you to study for a longer period in a UK Higher Education Institution and is measured in the fourth tier of the UK’s Five-Tier points-based system.

No, you will not be able to bring dependants with you to the UK on this visa.
