Short-term study visa
The short-term study visa allows non-EEA nationals/students to come and study in the United Kingdom for a course 6 to 11 month’s duration .
You will need a letter to support entry to the UK as a short-term student. If you are a national of a country in the EEA or Switzerland, you do not need a visa to study.
The short-term study routes (previously student visitor routes) are for people who want to come to the UK to study for a short period of time on a course that does not include a work placement or work experience, with the exception of electives which meet paragraph A57D(a)(iii) of the Immigration Rules.
There are 3 short-term student routes:
- short-term student (6 months) – for applicants aged 16 and over for a maximum
of 6 months’ study
- short-term student (11 months) – for applicants aged 16 and over for a
maximum of 11 months’ English language study only
- short-term student (child) – for applicants aged under 16 for a maximum of 6
What will I learn?
Our ESOL courses are designed for people who are not native speakers and want to improve their use of and understanding of English. These courses will help students to develop and practise their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. You will be able to progress through the ESOL levels as you wish, improve your understanding of British culture and gain the opportunity to further your career. Additionally, our ESOL course can be used as a bridge into further education in the UK .
The course covers grammar and vocabulary and all four language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing.
Work is undertaken in a classroom environment communicating with teachers and the other students, sometimes in pairs, small groups or as a whole class.
