Student visas

When you decide to study in the UK, you must make sure that your chosen school is accredited to accept overseas students.

ABC School of English is authorised by the UK Visa and Immigration service (UKVI), through our accreditation with Accreditation UK, to support students to apply for study visas.

Student visa news - Students can study for up to six months as visitors.

Anyone applying for a visa to study in the UK for less that six months will need a Standard Visitor visa.   If you are applying to study for up to six months, you must prove that you have been accepted onto a course, of no more than six months, provided by an accredited UK institution.  ABC School of English has been accredited by the British Council since 2009.

Students from the EU, EEA, Switzerland and other non-visa national countries do not require a visa to study for up to six months - they can travel without a visa and use the e-gates.

Anyone applying for a visa to study in the UK for between six and eleven months will need a Short Term Student Visa.
