General Information: At Birmingham, we encourage bold, independent thinking and offer a high-quality academic experience to stretch and challenge you. By studying with us, you will be an active part of a diverse university community as you pursue your own interests and develop the career path that's right for you.
Visa Requirements: A visa is required if you (or your family members) are nationals of a country that is outside the UK. When you apply from outside the UK for a visa application, this is referred to as "Entry Clearance". This gives you permission to enter the UK once you have been cleared as meeting the immigration requirements. Entry Clearance is used by UKVI Entry Clearance Officers (ECOs) to verify, before an individual is permitted to arrive in the United Kingdom, that this person qualifies under the Immigration Rules for allowing the entry.
If you are a national of the EEA or Switzerland, you may not need immigration permission to enter the UK provided you have applied, been granted and retained their pre-settled status (limited leave to remain) / settled status (Indefinite leave to remain) under the EU Settlement Scheme. With permission under the scheme there will be no restrictions on study (where you study or what you study). Please note, if you have not travelled to the UK before 30 June 2021 or have other eligiblity under this EU SS Scheme where this deadline doesn't apply. If you do not have eligiblity under the EU Settlement Scheme you will need to consider the Student Route visa or other visa routes to enter the UK for your studies.
