The IAS Visa Wizard is the easy way to find the correct visa for you
If you are a non-EEA (European Economic Area) national and you are looking to study in UK, obtaining a Student Visa will allow you to do this. The Tier 4 Student Visa is for adult students looking to study long-term whereas the Student Visitor Visa covers shorter periods of study.
There are several different types of Study Visa which you can apply for. If you are looking to study within a UK Educational Institution, for any period longer than six months, you may apply for a Tier 4 General Visa. Alternatively, if your course of study runs for six months or less, you can apply for a Student Visitor Visa.
IAS have helped many international students get study visas and we can help you do the same. Our team of immigration lawyers will assess and advise on your eligibility for a UK Student Visa under the UK Immigration rules.
We will professionally compile the required documentary evidence, complete the necessary paperwork and design a Letter of Representation in support of your visa application. Your tailored Letter of Representation will specify the merits of your case, reference supporting documentation and cite relevant law, all in support of your case. We will also liaise with your university/institution and the Home Office until a decision has been made.
If you’re ready to take the first steps to study in England or study in London, get in touch with our team using our online enquiry form or by calling us at 0333 363 8577.

If your course is six-months or less, you can apply for a Student Visitor Visa. This allows you to study in the UK for up to six months, provided you are at least 18 years old and can prove that you have access to the appropriate funds.

Yes – any child between the ages of 4 and 17 years old is eligible for a Study Visa, under the Tier 4 (Child) Visa category. To be eligible, they must provide evidence that they have been accepted into an independent fee-paying school.
This application should be made from the child’s country of residence. The child can generally remain in the UK for the full length of their course and for four months after it finishes. After this, they must leave the UK unless they have applied to extend their stay or switched to another immigration category.
