UK Short-term Study Visa

Most nationals from countries outside the European Union/European Economic Area need a visa to enter the United Kingdom for study purposes. It is very important to check the immigration requirements early since it takes around two months for the visa to be issued.

If you are planning to travel to another country in the European Union other than the UK, you must apply for tourist or a Schengen visa separately before leaving Malaysia. Note that you cannot apply for this once you have arrived in the UK on a study visa.
