Studying in
the UK

The UK is a great place to study, with some of the best higher education in the world. In fact, Manchester boasts four local universities and a thriving student community. At Ashwood Solicitors, we can advise on your immigration situation and whether remaining in the UK to study at one of our universities is a possibility.

You can apply for a student visa to enable you to study in the UK if you’re 16 or over and have a place on a course by a licensed student sponsor. You will also need to have enough money to pay for the course and support yourself. This may vary depending on circumstances, but speaking, reading, writing, and understanding English are essential, when it comes to studying in the UK. 

If you wish to come here to study or are seeking to extend your visa to continue with your education, the Home Office will need to be satisfied that:

  • You have a Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) from a highly trusted sponsor.
  • That you have sufficient funds to maintain yourself in the UK
  • That you have paid at least the first year of your course fees to your course provider
  • That you speak the required level of English

Some circumstances students will face are not always immediately straightforward. For example, matters like work placements, proving academic progression and getting leave to allow you to attend resits can all be problematic unless handled correctly. At Ashwood Solicitors, we have an experienced team who ensures that you understand your position and get sound advice.

We can also assist in helping your family members to come over as dependants, but this option is only open to those studying at masters’ level and above. With skilled legal experts, Ashwood Solicitors can provide immigration and visa advice, help in applications and refusals.
