If you live outside the UK, you will need to apply for a Tier 4 student (General) visa or Short Term Student visitor visa to study in the UK unless you are an EEA or Swiss national.
The short term student visa scheme may not be appropriate for students who want to stay longer or work after completion of their initial course due to the fact that if you are on a short term student visa you cannot switch to another type of visa, extend your visa or work during your stay.
You can apply for a Tier 4 (General) student visa to study in the UK if you are 16 or over. You must apply up to three months in advance of your course start date. The time to consider the application can vary therefore you are encouraged to make an early application.
Following approval of your application and your arrival into the UK, you can start using the National Health Service (NHS) however, you will still need to pay for certain types of services, such as prescriptions, dental treatment, eye tests and assisted conception.
It is important that you carry your biometric residence permit with you when you access healthcare in the UK.
