Do you need a visa?

UK visa regulations for international students continue to change. Use the visa checker here to see if you need a student visa and to get the latest and most accurate information.

You can study in the UK without a student visa if:

  • you are a national of a country in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland;
  • you are a British overseas territories citizen, unless you are from one of the sovereign base areas in Cyprus;
  • you are a Commonwealth citizen with permission to enter or stay in the UK because at least one of your grandparents was born here;

Ask if you are unsure.
