Most international students will need to apply to the UK Home Office for a visa before coming to the UK and we can help you to do this.

Lots of helpful information about studying in the UK, immigration, and visas can be found at:


Short-term study visa

This is the most appropriate visa route for non-EEA nationals coming to the UK for study of less than six months or up to eleven months for the study of English language. Student Visitors are permitted to study either part-time or full-time.

More information about the Short-term study visa can be found here.


The Short-term study visa is the only route available to students on our English Language programme. It may also be possible to join our English Language programme if you are already in the UK and have an immigration status that permits study; please contact the International Team for further advice.

Other visa categories

Holders of certain other visas may be permitted to study. For example, some categories of Visitor visa may permit study for a maximum of thirty days. If you have any questions about this, or any other questions relating to visas, please contact the International Team and we will be very pleased to advise you further. If you are already in the UK and would like to know if your immigration status permits study with us, please email a scanned copy of your passport and visa/BRP and we will be pleased to advise you.

Please inform the International Team by email, once you have been granted your visa, and include a scanned copy of your visa in your email.

If your visa application is refused, please inform the International Team as soon as possible, and email us a scanned copy of all pages of your Refusal Notice. We will then be able to advise you on the options available to you.

For guidance on how to apply for a visa from outside the UK, please refer to GOV.UK

Please do not hesitate to contact the International Team if you have any questions about applying for a visa—we are here to help you.

If you are already in the UK, please contact us to book an appointment with one of our advisors.


“I chose to study at Loughborough College because the reputation of the College is excellent. I chose Loughborough as it is a sporting town, yet quiet and accessible from my home in Saudi Arabia. I also like the British accent! and I would recommend students to study at Loughborough College.”
