If you are a national of a country outside the European Economic Area and are coming to study at Glasgow Caledonian University, then you will require a visa.
Please be aware that the gov.uk website www.gov.uk/check-uk-visaappears to indicate that non-visa nationals do not require a short-term study visa to enter the UK. To clarify, a non-visa national coming to participate in a course for fewer than 6 months does require UK immigration permission but can secure the correct visa at port of entry to the UK rather than in advance of travel.
If you are coming to study a full-time programme as an undergraduate, postgraduate or research student, you will need to apply for a Tier 4 (General) visa. If you are only coming to study a short course of 6 months or less (or 11 months or less to study English Language), coming as an exchange student for one trimester, or coming to repeat/resit modules or exams, you may only need to apply for a Short-Term Study visa. If you are not sure whether you should apply for Tier 4 (General) or Short-Term Study visa, please contact us: visa@GCU.ac.uk or GCU London: visa@GCULondon.ac.uk.
