Student Visa Application Service

Your UK Student Visa Application

SI-UK's visa consultant is registered with the Home Office OISC* (Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner) and has extensive knowledge of the latest immigration legislation, rules and regulations.

SI-UK’s Student Visa Service offers advice and assistance to international students wishing to obtain a UK visa, specialising in the general student visa, the child student visa and the short-term study visa (for English language courses lasting 6-11 months).

To be eligible for a Student Visa in the UK, you must have received a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies and meet the points-based immigration system threshold. The Graduate Visa, introduced in 2021, allows international student graduates to look for work in the UK for 2-3 years (degree dependent) after graduation. 

If you want to use the Student Visa Service or have any questions about your student visa, whether big or small, arrange a free consultation with our visa team today.

Graduate Visa Route

The post-study work visa allows international students studying undergraduate and postgraduate courses at UK universities to look for work in the UK for 2-3 years after graduation (course dependent).

During this period, students can work at any skill level without meeting the conditions of a minimum threshold salary or job sponsorship from employers, and the Graduate Route is a great way for international students to access the lucrative UK labour market.
