Don't Let The New UK Student Visa Rules Stop You From Studying In The UK

The UK government has announced that it will be changing the rules for student visas from January 2024. One of the most significant changes is that international students will no longer be able to bring their partners or children to the UK on their student visas, unless they are studying a postgraduate research course.


This change is being made to "prevent people from using student visas as a backdoor to get to the UK to work". It also says that the changes will help to "protect public services".


🇬🇧 Which type of student can bring their partner?

Only international students who are studying a postgraduate research course (e.g., research-based PhDs and research-based master's programmes) will be able to bring their partners to the UK on their student visas from January 2024.

Students who are studying other types of postgraduate courses, such as taught master's programmes or MBAs, will not be able to bring their partners.

International students who are studying undergraduate courses will also not be able to bring their partners, regardless of whether the course is taught or research-based.

Below are a few examples of research subjects on which you can bring your partner:

💻 𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐮𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐒𝐜𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞

💊 𝐌𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐧𝐞

👨🏻‍🔬 𝐄𝐧𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠

👩🏻‍⚕️ 𝐏𝐡𝐲𝐬𝐢𝐜𝐬

⚗️ 𝐂𝐡𝐞𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐲

☣️ 𝐁𝐢𝐨𝐥𝐨𝐠𝐲

📐 𝐌𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐬

💹 𝐄𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐜𝐬

👨‍💼 𝐁𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐀𝐝𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧

👩‍⚖️ 𝐋𝐚𝐰


These are just a few examples, and there are many other research-based courses available in the UK. International students should contact their university or college for more information about the specific courses that are eligible for dependent visas.
