If you are a visa national, you must apply for Short Term Study Visa in your home country. You will need to submit your visa application by completing an online application on the Home Office website. As a part of your application you must attend the BHC in the country of your application in person and have your biometric data (fingerprints) taken.
The cost of Short Term Study Visa is £(visa fee) for visa nationals and non-visa nationals applying for a visa before they
arrive in the UK.
It is free for non-visa nationals applying for Short Term Study Visa on arrival.
If you are applying for your Short Term Study Visa from overseas, a green color visa sticker will be endorsed in your passport. It will have the date your visa is valid from, and the date of expiry. It will include letters ‘Short Term Study Visa’ to show the type of your visa.
If you are getting your visa on arrival, you will not have a sticker in your passport. Instead, you will have your passport stamped in immigration, and officer will add letters ‘VST’ next to the stamp. (This is the difference between Short Term Study Visa and Visitor Visa).
Please check that the date of entry is clear on the entry stamp. If you cannot read it, ask the officer to stamp it again.
