    The Child Student Visa route is for children aged between 4 and 17 who wish to study at an independent school in the UK, which is a Home Office approved student sponsor.

    If you are aged 18 or over and wish to study a further or higher education course in the UK then you should apply for a Student Visa instead.  If you are aged 16 or 17 and want to study a course at or above Level 3 of the Regulated Qualifications Framework then you can apply as either a Child Student at an independent school or as a Student.

    Requirements for a Child Student Visa

    In order to qualify for a Child Student Visa, you will need to satisfy UK Visas and Immigration that:

    • You are aged between 4 and 17;
    • You have been offered an unconditional place on an approved course of study at an independent school holding a valid student sponsor licence;
    • You have enough money to support yourself and pay for your course without relying on public funds;
    • You have the consent of your parent(s) or legal guardian.

    The exact requirements you will need to satisfy will vary depending on your circumstances.  Please speak to our solicitors for expert advice
