Do I need a visa to study in the UK?
basic visa information
- Students requiring visas must study for a minimum of 15 hours per week, which is equivalent to 20 weekly lessons in United World.
- Students requiring a study visa will only be accepted at United World as student visitors.

There are two types of study visas:
A student can apply for a student visitor visa for a maximum of 11 months and there is no minimum level of English requirement. You will need to provide evidence of financial sponsorship. If you are under 18 and wish to apply for a course of 6 months or less, you need to apply for a Child Visa.
