Student Visa

If you are an international student who is coming to NCH to study a programme that is longer than 6 months, you must apply for a Student Visa before coming to the UK. This visa has replaced the Tier 4 visa.

Under the Student Visa, students are permitted to enrol and study their programme with NCH. Students are able to work a maximum of 20 hours per week during term time and full time during term break or vacations.

You must apply for this visa before you arrive in the UK, it is not possible to switch from a visitor visa to a Student visa.

EU/EEA nationals who do not have Pre-Settled or Settled Status, or another UK visa that allows them to study, will need to apply for a Student Visa.

If you are an international student who has another UK visa that allows you to study in the UK for the duration of your programme, you may not need to apply for a Student Visa. Please contact the Visa Compliance Team (visa@nchlondon.ac.uk) to discuss your immigration requirements further.
