UK Home Office increases student visa flexibility for stays of up to six months

27 July 2020

Following extended lobbying by English UK, the UK Home Office has announced increased visa flexibility for international student stays of up to six months.

The short-term study visa route is due to end in December, but international students who want to study in the UK at an accredited provider can now enter the country on a standard visitor visa.

Jodie Gray, English UK interim chief executive, said: “This is really positive news for our industry and follows extensive lobbying by English UK and other sector bodies. We expect this to make the system much simpler for students who get a taste for taking more courses and for the member centres which teach them.”

If you want to study at an English language school in the UK, arrange a free consultation with SI-UK Nairobi or Mombasa today.

SI-UK's service is fast, reliable and efficient. Their consultants are specialists, working closely with all UK universities and, through my consultants' advice and application assistance, I was able to receive offers from my favoured universities.
