Student Study / Visa Requirements

If you are a national of a country that is on the 'visa national list' it is compulsory to obtain a visa before travelling to the UK. You will have to apply to enter under a ‘Student Visitor’ visa. When travelling under a ‘Student Visitor’ visa the maximum period of stay, and therefore course duration, is 26 weeks. To come to EKGTA as a student visitor you must show that you have been unconditionally accepted on a course ( Visa Support Letter ). You must also be at least 18 years old and have the financial resources to accommodate and maintain yourself during the visit.
Further information can be found from the following websites.
