INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS www.lcca.org.uk 39 Visas and Immigration Information Most students from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland will need a student Visa to study in the UK. Application forms and advice about the Visa process is available from www.ukvisas.gov. uk or your local British Council office. Please note that some countries have different procedures for Visa applications. The way you are classed is based on your nationality - see the ukvisas website for more information. All Visa nationals must apply for a Visa as a student before they come to the UK, regardless of the length of their course. If you are classed as a non-Visa national, and are coming for a course of six months or less, you have the option of applying for permission to enter and stay in the UK when you arrive here – however we strongly recommend that you apply for an entry clearance before leaving your home country. If you are studying for more than six months, you must apply for a Visa to the UK before leaving your home country. To apply for a student Visa you will need to provide: A completed Visa application form (VAF9- PBS Migrant) accompanied with PBS Appendix 8 General Student Self- Assessment form which are available from the UK Visas website An original unconditional enrolment letter from LCCA.

Living Expenses for Students in London In addition to your tuition fees, you need to ensure that you have enough funds for your daily expenses in the UK. International students (non EEA students) should know that when applying for a Visa, the immigration officer will want to see that you have enough funds to accommodate and support yourself for the duration of your course without recourse to any public funds. Living and studying in the UK can be more expensive than in your home country. As a guide, we recommend you have approximately £10,000 per year. This should cover: Accommodation Support and Advice We give help and advice to all international students.
