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. Whatever your circumstances, Tamsons Legal Services can offer valuable advice or assistance.
