Those who wish to travel to the UK as students must be able to show that:
- They have been issued with the correct Entry Clearance to travel to the UK.
- They have gained a place for a course at a publicly funded establishment of higher or further education; or at a bona fide private educational establishment, or independent fee paying school. Any educational organisation must be included on the ‘Department for Education and Skills’ Register of Education and Training Providers’.
- They intend to study a full time degree course, or a course amounting to no less than 15hrs per week of organised daytime study of one subject, or directly related subjects, during weekdays.

You can do this by:

- Obtaining Tier 2(Genral) visa
- Taking advantage of Tier 1 (Post Study Work) visa
