Visas

Chichester College wants you to be able to come and study with us. If you are an international student, a UK student Visa will be the most important thing for you to arrange.

Visa

When you have been accepted at Chichester College we will provide you with the relevant documents you need for a Visa application.  To make sure that your Visa application goes through in time please apply early.

 

Immigration Health Surcharge

Please make sure you are paying this before you make your visa application as you will need the IHS reference number as part of your visa application. Failure to pay the surcharge will result in the visa being refused. Below is the link to the UKVI page where you will find details about the health charge and how to pay.
