Student Visa Requirement for UK

As an Indian student, the government of the UK allows you to study in a country, as long as you have a valid student visa.

There are 4 types of visas that are issued depending on your age and the type, of course, you are taking up.

Tier 4 (General) Student Visa
This visa is issued to students above the age of 16, who have a confirmed seat at an educational institution in the UK.

Tier 4 (General) Student Visa
This is granted to those students who have confirmed admissions in an educational institution in the UK without a valid Tier 4 sponsor.

Tier 4 (Child) Student Visa
This visa is issued to students who are between the ages of 4-17, and have secured admission to an educational institution in the UK and have a valid Tier4 sponsor.

Short-Term Study Visa
These visas are issued to students who are pursuing a short-term training or English language course.

In all visa categories, we recommend applying at least 3 months in advance from your travel dates and entering the UK at least 30 days before the start of your course, if its duration is longer than 6 months.
