Making your education count The student visa journey

  • The student will need a visa letter from his/her chosen place of study which confirms that the institution has accepted him/her to study, and contains details about the student and the course.

  • This letter is very important - it shows that the education provider:

  • Will act as the student’s immigration sponsor;

  • Is confident that the student is capable of doing the course; and

  • Will accept responsibility for the student while he/she is in the UK.

ATAS: www.fco.gov.uk/atas

  • In common with other governments around the world, the British Government is working hard to stop the spread of knowledge and skills that could be used in the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their means of delivery.

  • The ATAS is designed to ensure that people who are applying to study certain sensitive subjects in the UK do not have links to WMD programmes.

    • Students who need an ATAS certificate must obtain this BEFORE applying for their student visa.

    • An application will automatically be refused if an applicant needs an ATAS certificate and cannot provide one.
