If you are Aged 4 to 17
If you are aged between the age of 4 and 17 you may want to apply for either a long term or a short term study visa, depending on your requirements.
Long Term Study Visas
Children wishing to study in the UK who are between the ages of 4 and 17 must apply as a child student under Tier 4 of the points-based entry system and students aged 4-15 are only eligible if they are relocating to the UK to receive education from an independent fee-charging school.
Short Term Study Visas
Individuals under the age of 18 who wish to come to the UK to study for up to six months can apply as a child visitor.
There are several unwavering conditions to be met when it comes to applying for a child visitor visa, and these will be explained to you in great detail during your consultation.
You must meet the minimum requirements of the visa to be granted permission to study in the UK.
Examples of the requirements of a short term study visa include:
- Having sufficient funds to support yourself throughout your stay
- Having suitable accommodation in the UK
- Be able to meet the cost of your return or onward journey once your visa expires
Same-Day Student Visas
We appreciate that time tends to be of the essence when it comes to organising studies, so we are able to offer a premium same-day student visa application service which will increase the speed of your submission notably.
