Applying for a Student route visa inside the UK

You will not be able to apply for your Student visa from within the UK unless you are already in the UK with a Student visa for previous study and you meet specific academic progression conditions or you have a visa type which allows switching into the Student Route. You must read the section 'Can I apply in the UK?' to understand the limited circumstances in which you can apply for a visa here. You MUST not come to the UK as a Visitor or without a visa, as you will not be able to make a Student visa application from within the UK and you will not be permitted to start your course.
