SHORT-TERM STUDENT VISA (ENGLISH LANGUAGE)
The Short-term Student Visa (English Language) is a route for persons aged 16 and over who want to study an English language course in the UK for between 6 and 11 months without a student sponsor but at an accredited institution.
If you wish to study an English language course that will last longer than 11 months then you should apply for a Student Visa or Child Student Visa instead.
If you wish to study a course or complete a period of research that will last less than 6 months then the UK also offers a shorter 6-month Short-term Student Visa. This route can also be used by persons who wish to re-sit an examination, retake a module or take an oral examination as part of a PhD qualification. There is also a Short-term Student (Child) route which is available to persons under the age of 16.
