You can apply for a Child Student Visa if your child is between 4 and 17 years old and they want to study at an independent school in the UK.
The child must, among other things, have:
- an unconditional offer of a place on a course at a UK independent school;
- be able to show they will have access to enough money to support themselves in the UK and pay for their course; and
- have consent of the parents or guardian to study in the UK.
Applying from outside the UK
The earliest that an application can be made for a Child Student Visa is 6 months before the student starts their course.
Applying from inside the UK
The earliest that an application can be made for a Child Student Visa is 3 months before their course starts. The application must be made before their current visa expires. Their new course must begin within 28 days of their current visa expiring.
Student and University Staff Applications – Full Representation
Full representation is a comprehensive service, that allows our firm to become your legal representatives and to represent you in all matters concerning your UK visa. This includes preparing the appropriate forms and liaising with UKVI on your behalf.
If you decided that full representation was the appropriate service for you, we would take detailed instructions from you, issue a client care letter and other appropriate paperwork to you, plan works according to what we consider to be your best interests, advise you of any documents or information that we may need to prepare the case efficiently and lodge your visa application for you. We would ensure that you are updated on any key developments on your matter and remain as your legal representatives until a decision is reached on your visa for the UK.
We would endeavour to be on hand throughout the application process to guide you and answer any questions you might have about the process. Once the visa has been concluded, we would send you a closing letter outlining any items that we think you may wish to know moving forwards.
Full representation may not be suitable for all clients, but our experience is that for those who have utilised this service with us, they have found it to be very helpful indeed. We would encourage readers to consider the wide range of positive reviews which are available on the internet, relating to our services.
We are proud to be able to offer a fixed fee for full representation in your visa for the UK. Many of our clients find this to be useful in managing their costs and expectations. Although the below pricing information provides a cost range, you will always be given a precise cost on instruction and this will be detailed in your client care letter. The reason that we provide a cost range is because cases can vary considerably according to their complexity.
