VISA APPLICATION

SHORT TERM STUDY

International students (ie students who do not hold an EU/EEA passport) must have the correct Short Term Study visa / immigration permission to be able to complete a Summer Schools programme.

Failure to have the correct visa will mean you will be unable to be enrolled on your programme on arrival at Queen’s University Belfast. Therefore it is essential to acquire the correct student visa before or when entering the UK.

Please note: When applying as a short-term student, you must intend to leave the UK within 30 days of the end of your study (if it is before the date your immigration permission ends). If you do not leave the UK within this time, it could affect any future immigration applications to the UK (such applications could be refused and a time-bar applied if the Home Office believes you exercised deception about your intention in your short-term student immigration application).

Please read our Short Term Study Visa Guidance for more information.

Students should begin to prepare their visa application and supporting documents as early as possible before they are required to begin their studies. This should allow them sufficient time to have everything in order for their arrival at Queen’s.

If you are an international student you will receive a visa supporting letter from our International Student Support Office. Letters are usually posted in May.

If you have any further queries relating to visas please contact our International Student Support Team immigration@qub.ac.uk. Remember to inform them that you are attending the four week International Summer School.
