How long you can stay in the UK will depend on the length of your course and what study you've already completed in the UK. If you're over 18 and are studying at degree level, then you can normally remain in the UK for up to five years; if your course is below degree level, you can normally stay for two years.

However, you may be able to:

  • extend your visa if you're eligible (for instance, to continue studying in the UK)
  • switch to a student visa from another visa if you're already in the UK
  • switch to a graduate visa to remain in the UK for at least two years after completion of your course
