VISA / OTHER

Visa Information - Exchange students going to the UK for one semester may apply for a Student Visitor Visa or a Tier IV Student Visa. It is easier and more affordable to obtain a Student Visitor Visa, but that type of visa has a maximum duration of 6 months, and students are not allowed to work from abroad. Students going on a yearlong exchange must apply for a Tier IV Student Visa. For more information, visit the UK Border Agency website.
