Arriving to the UK before getting a visaWatch
Hi, I want to ask if it's possible/legal to travel to the UK as a tourist from Asia (with no visa) and get a student visa within 6 months then start my university studies there? This is because Covid made it nearly impossible to get a Tier 4 Visa in my home country before university starts.
You need a valid student visa to enrol on your course.
You must apply for that visa from outside the UK (although not necessarily in your own country).
