Steps for Students who Require a Visa

The steps you should follow:

  1. Send a scan of your passport  to the school by email.
  2. If you wish to apply for a General Student Visa (GSV) please send a copy of a UKVI approved Secure English Language Test (SELT). Details of the approved tests and test centres can be found by clicking here.
  3. General Student Visa applicants must also complete a Student Assessment Questionnaire so that we can properly understand your background and future study plans prior to issuing a GSV.
  4. If you have a recent approved Secure English Language Test (SELT) this will be used as proof of your English language level and means you will not require to complete our Online Placement test
  5. If you are applying for a Short Term Student Visa and are from any of the countries shown on this page, then you must also send us a completed Student Assessment Questionnaire.

It’s well organised. The teachers are good. They are aware of our mistakes and help correct them. I live with a host family and I now notice when they don’t correct my mistakes so the teachers are obviously having a beneficial effect on my English!
