Inviting your family to stay for more than six months
From 4 July 2011, if you are a postgraduate student who is studying a course of 12 months or longer, or you are a government sponsored student on a course of six months or longer, your partner and children can apply to come to the UK as student dependants. Your family member can find full information about applying as a student dependant on the UK Border Agency's website.
If your family member is unsure about any specific part of the application form, you should send through their query to email@example.com and our team will do our best to help them.
When your friend or family member decide they want to visit you, they should go to their nearest British Embassy/High Commission and details of application forms and guidance can be found at the UK Border Agency website.
