The IAS Visa Wizard is the easy way to find the correct visa for you
The Student Visitor Visa, or Short-Term Study Visa, can be used to study in the UK on a temporary basis. There are different options depending on if your child is coming to the UK to study an English course.
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 UK Student 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.

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.
