Types of UK Student Visas
Short-Term Study Visa in The UK
Short term study visas are available to students who wish to enroll in courses that are up to 6 months long or English language learner courses up to 11 months long. Due to regulations by the UK government, this type of visa cannot be extended in the UK. To apply for a Short-term visa, you will be required to provide evidence to prove that you can financially support yourself during your study period in the UK. All students must have at least £1,265 GBP for each month of their time in London. This is for living costs or “maintenance” as designated by UKVI (UK Visa & Immigration). You must possess these funds even if your housing has already been paid for in full. Students eligible to the Differentiation arrangements don’t have to send those documents when they submit their visa application but home office might ask them to provide those evidence at a later stage within a short notice.
