You are responsible for ensuring that you have the appropriate visa to enter the UK or the programme destination. The University reserves the right to refuse admission to anybody who arrives later than the start date of the Global Summer School programme and will inform the Home Office of students failing to enrol.
You must obtain the correct visa before you enter the UK or the programme destination, (Short-term Study Visa for UK), if you do not have the correct visa you will not be able to participate in the programme.
Please be aware that due to changes in visa requirements, visas may take slightly longer than anticipated so ensure that sufficient time is allowed to apply. Visa advice can be obtained through the government website
or on our international student page
If you are a non-visa national (your country has an agreement that you can be issued a visa on arrival in the UK), it is vital that you ask for a Short-term Study Visa on entry in to the UK so that you are issued with the correct type of visa. You will not be able to take part in the programme if you are issued the wrong type of visa.
A valid passport with an expiry date of at least 6 months is required in order to enter the UK. Further information can be found on the UKBA website
