Student Visitor Visa

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.

Student Visitor Visa Application Help

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 on 0333 363 8577 or make an enquiry online for more information about your specific queries or application for a Short-Term Study Visa.

Student Visitor Visa FAQs

Am I eligible for a Student Visitor Visa?

To apply for this visa category you must:

  • be at least 18 years old;
  • prove that you have sufficient funds to support and accommodate yourself in the UK during your course;
  • demonstrate that you can meet the cost of your return or onward journey from the UK; and
  • your course of study must be six months or under; or
  • if your course of study is an English course, the maximum course length can be extended to 11 months.

Can I switch from Student Visitor Visa to Tier 4 (General) Visa?

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.

Can I bring dependents with me on a Short-Term Study Visa?

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

However, if you study in the UK using the Tier 4 Student Visa rather than the Short-Term Study Visa, you will be eligible to bring dependants to the UK with you.
