More information on how to apply for the Short-term study visa.

We have been advised by the UKBA that we are currently unable to accept applications from international students requiring a student visa or prior entry clearance to study in the UK. This visa is required for courses longer than six months.

For more information on entry requirements please read the information on our Entry Requirements page.

Healthcare and Insurance

International students are strongly recommended to take out sufficient travel insurance before they travel to the UK for any period of study. International students will be required to pay for any healthcare (emergency or otherwise) that they require at the point they use it. The only exceptions to this are currently:

  • Treatment given in an accident and emergency (A&E) department – this does not include any further treatment following an admission to hospital
  • Treatment for certain infectious diseases (but for HIV/AIDS, only the first diagnosis and counselling that follows it are free)
  • Compulsory psychiatric treatment
  • Family planning services – this does not include termination of pregnancy or infertility treatments.

Redcliffe will not cover any expenses that a student incurs relating to healthcare they receive. Please read the information on this page for up-to-date information on how healthcare relates to your visa.
