PARENT OF A CHILD STUDENT VISA
We provide immigration advice and guidance to help your visa application get the best chance of success
Who needs to apply
The Parent of a Child Student route is designed for parents who want to come to or stay in the UK to look after their child aged between 4 and 11, where the child is in the UK on a Child Student visa and is attending an independent (private) fee-paying day school.
If you are a parent who wants to accompany your child during their English language course for less than 6 months, you and your child should apply for a Standard visitor visa.
