Greetings, viewers! Welcome to Meridean Overseas.


Are you considering studying in the UK? If so, there's an important rule you need to be aware of: the UK's 3-month study visa rule. In this video, we'll explain what this rule entails, so make sure to watch until the end.


So, let's get into it. If you are planning to study in the UK, the UK Student Visa 3-month rule applies to you. Here's what it means:


According to this rule, when you arrive in the UK on a study visa, you must enter the country one month before your program begins and leave within three months after your program ends.


Now, when can you actually travel to the UK? You can go when your visa arrives on time. Whether you're travelling for leisure, education, or work, it's crucial to apply for your visa well in advance. This ensures that you receive your decision in time, allowing you to plan your trip.


If you're applying for a visa from outside the UK, the standard processing time is about three weeks. However, if you're already in the UK and need to renew your visa, you must apply for renewal before your current visa expires. In this case, the standard processing time for the visa decision is 8 weeks.


Now, let's discuss how long you can stay in the UK based on your circumstances:


If you're 18 years old or older and enrolled in a degree-level course, you're allowed to stay in the UK for up to 5 years.


If your course is below the degree level, you'll be permitted to stay for 2 years.


For those of you preparing for the January intake, this is your last opportunity before the next intake in September. So, if you're planning to start your studies in January, don't miss this chance!
