Many of our students will require a Short Term Study Visa to study on a Summer Programmes course in the UK. We recommend that all students read this visa information guide and visit this website to find out what they need to apply for and when. All students will be issued with a Short Term Study Visa support letter upon confirmation of their place on their chosen programme. This letter can be used to support visa applications or can be shown to immigration upon arrival into the UK.
As your UK study programme is fewer than 6 months, you will need a short-term study stamp in your passport. On arrival in the UK, you must see a Border Force officer who can stamp your passport at the airport or other point of entry. Nationals of Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea or the USA. DO NOT use an eGate to exit Border Control without the short-term study stamp.
Please keep a copy of your Short Term student visa letter in your hand luggage prior to travelling and present this with your passport at the UK Border.
On the first day all Undergraduate Summer School students will attend an information session, finish enrolment, pick up their ID card and attend their first class.
