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.

The teachers make me laugh and they also make me feel that they are concerned for me, not just as a student of English but as a person too. When you are far away from home that’s very important. At the end of every week, they ask what you liked and what they can do to help you improve your English skills.
