Visa Guide

If you are an international student, you will probably need a visa to come and study in the UK. The visa you need depends on several factors including the length of your stay and the course you are studying.

For our most up to date information on visas please refer to our Visa Guide pages on our parent site - Cambridge Education Group.

Here you will find important and detailed information on the types of study visas; Short Term Study Visas and Tier 4 Visas.  There are also a number of helpful guides and documents for you to download such as:

Please note that students studying at CSVPA on a Short Term Study Visa or a Tier 4 Visa are not allowed to work during their studies regardless of the course level.

Students studying on the MA course will be able to do work experience (as an assessed part of the course) as this information will be given to UKVI when you make your visa application.

While every effort is made to keep our information up-to-date, immigration regulations are subject to changes and the information provided here is for guidance only. You should check the UKVI website for up-to-date information and contact us if you have any questions.
