If you are a citizen of a country in the European Union or the European Economic Area, or of Switzerland, you do not need a visa to enter the UK. If you come from anywhere else you will need a visa and we will help you to apply for it from a British Embassy.
We can help you to apply for a General Visitor Visa, Child Visitor Visa, Business Visitor Visa, Student Visitor Visa, Prospective Students Visa, Tier 4 Visas and others.
As soon as you decide to apply for a visa, you need to send us the following documents no later than 60 days before your course commences:
- your application form for the course;
- a copy of your foreign passport;
- the signed agreement between Study British English and student;
- Pre-payment for the study program in the UK.
Upon receipt of these, we will send you a list of the documents which you need to prepare, together with a visa questionnaire and original documents from the college and Study British English Company, to present to the British Embassy when you apply for your visa.
All documents have to be translated into English. You can do this through a language bureau, or we can help you for an additional fee.
You need to apply in person to the Visa Centre where your fingerprints will be scanned. Documents submitted to the British Embassy will be take at least 2 or 3 weeks for assessment. On payment of a surcharge, it is possible to use the Priority Visa Service at Visa Application Centre. (This service allows you to have your visa application placed at the front of the queue). Each visa gives different rights and entitlements, but you need to remember that according to the new rules, short-term students (of up to 11 months) cannot work within the territory of the UK.
Warning: You are solely responsible for the information about yourself and the documents that you give to SBE and the British Embassy.
