Japan (Non-EU Country) to the UK
According to the UK Immigration Law you are required to obtain an entry clearance (visa) when entering the UK.
Applicants intending to study an English Language Course in the UK for less than 6 months, who do not wish to work during their stay, can seek entry to the UK on arrival, as a student visitor, without prior entry clearance (visa).
However, applicants wishing to study an English Language Course in the UK for more than 6 months, must apply for an Extended Student Visitor Visa, Tier 4 General Student Visa or the Youth Mobile Scheme in the origin country in advance.
Applicants will need to fill in an application form (online) and present the necessary documentation. There are different types of visa which you can apply for, so please see the document to find out which visa will be suitable for your studies and stay.
If you need more information, please feel free to contact us.
