Before you come to the UK to study it is sensible to check if you need a visa for study, and what type of visa might be suitable for you. The UK government webpages have a useful tool online to check if you need a UK visa. The Information below is about the Student visa, if you need an alternative visa please contact ISA by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Student visa
If you are an international student coming to study in the UK on or after 1 January 2021, including if you’re from the EU, EEA and Switzerland, you will need a Student visa before you arrive.
This includes if you began your course remotely online in autumn 2020.
If you currently have a Tier 4 (General) visa, this will continue until the expiry date. At that point, if needed, you can apply for another student visa through this Student visa route. It is very similar to the Tier 4 route so any reference to Tier 4 on our other webpages also relates to the new Student visa.
If you are hoping to bring your family to the UK please read more about international students with families.
