Visa and Immigration Advice

All students studying in the UK need permission to be here - if you do not have this by any other route, you need to apply for a Visa. There are two categories and the procedures are very different - please read below to find the Visa that is most appropriate for you.

Study for less than six months

If you are studying at Liverpool Hope University for less than six months, you can apply for a Standard Visitor Visa.

Information is available HERE

IMPORTANT: If you are a Non-visa national you can obtain your Visitor Visa at the airport, free of charge. However, we would like you to obtain a stamp in your passport - this means that you should NOT go through the EGates after you have completed the immigration checks. Some airport staff may tell you that you don't need a stamp (as it is no longer a legal requirement), however, our Compliance Team prefer you to have one, so please insist that you want the stamp. You will be diected to an Immigration Officer.
