Overseas students who are joining Sidcot School without a UK passport (and who plan to stay with us for longer than 6 months) will receive specialist international student visa support. These services are provided on the school’s behalf by Sable International, a UK immigration law specialist.
Sidcot is a UK Student Visa sponsor with the UKVI (UK Visas and Immigration), so we can issue a CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies) to support international student visa applications. The CAS provides proof that the student has an offer of a school place and is a vital part of the visa application process.
UK International Student Visa Requirements
In the UK, international student visa requirements are now the same for all non-British nationals, as of January 2021. All UK international student visas require entry clearance (permission to enter the UK for study reasons).
