Student Visas

East Sussex College is awarded Student Sponsor - Track Record status on the Register of licensed sponsors: students. We have permission by the UKVI to recruit and enrol international students on academic programmes longer than 6 months.

Which visa is required?

The visa you apply for depends on your circumstances.

If you’re studying on an English language course for up to 11 months, apply for a Short-term study visa.

If you’re coming to study on a further or higher education course, apply for a Student visa.

Many students can study in the UK for up to six months without a visa and some nationalities need to apply for a Standard Visitor visa.
