STUDENT VISITOR VISAS FOR NON-EU CITIZENS
Early application is essential in the case of all those who are not citizens of a European Union country. All non-EU participants in the Summer School are required by current UK immigration law and the Regulations of the University of Birmingham to obtain a Student Visitor Visa.
In some countries the visa application process can take up to three months, despite what you may be told when you start the application. You cannot start the application until you have been accepted for the Summer School and have received a "Visa Letter" from the University of Birmingham.
However, the UK Government announced on 26 March 2013 the abolition of the UK Border Agency, which has dealt with visa applications in recent years. It will be replaced with two different agencies under the direct control of the Home Secretary. One will deal with visas and the other with immigration control. Whether or not this will make any difference to the Student Visitor Visa system — and if so, how soon — is no yet known, but implementation of the administrative changes begins on 1 April.
Non-EU applicants will receive further information when their application is accepted.
