If you are a national that qualifies to use an electronic passport gate at the airport (Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea and the USA), please do not do so if you are intending to enter under the Short-term Study category. You should be informed at the airport to make your way to speak to a Border Force Officer but please remember this. Entry through the electronic gate will only confer leave to enter as a Standard Visitor i.e. as a tourist. This may affect your ability to register at the University for your chosen course. Your student visa must be endorsed by a Border Force Officer.
If this applies to you, we recommend that you copy and print the document below. You can carry this in your hand luggage and show it to a Border Force Officer when you arrive in the UK.
