If you are a national of a country outside the EEA or Switzerland, you must check your individual UK immigration status to find which type of visa you require.
If you are outside the UK, to find out more about your visa requirements, please go to the UKBA website
Your nearest British Embassy should also be able to provide you up-to-date information about visa requirements. The Foreign & Commonwealth Office website will provide you with contact details.

If you are a national of the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, you can enter the UK without any immigration restriction, and generally have a right of residence as a student.
