Visa Information

EU student visa requirements

Information for applicants from EU countries.

EU Settlement Scheme

If you have already obtained pre-settled or settled status in the UK under the EU Settlement Scheme, following Brexit in 2020, you will not require a Student Visa to study at RGU.

You’ll need to be able to provide evidence of your pre-settled or settled status using the View and Prove Your Immigration Status service on the UK Visas and Immigration website. Providing your Share Code to RGU will allow us to confirm your status and right to study in the UK.

Please note that the deadline for applications for the EU Settlement Scheme was 30 June 2021. Some applications may still be considered. You can find out more about late applications on theUK Government website.

Student Visa

If you have not obtained pre-settled or settled status and will be studying on campus at RGU for more than six months, you will require a Student Visa. You should follow the Student Visa advice provided in the rest of this section of the RGU website.

It is very important that you wait to receive the decision of your Student Visa application before travelling to the UK. Without confirmation of your Student Visa having been granted, you will not have the correct permission to study in the UK and may encounter difficulties with Border Force when entering the UK.  This ultimately may mean that you have to leave the UK and re-enter under the terms of your Student Visa, before you can start your course.

Studying for Six Months or Less

If you will be studying at RGU as part of an exchange or Study Abroad agreement, lasting six months or less, you will not require a Student Visa. You can undertake this as a visitor to the UK. You can use the Check if your need a UK visa tool if you are unsure. Alternatively, you can get in touch with the RGU staff arranging your exchange/Study Abroad placement.
