Following receipt of full payment of course fees, LCT is permitted by the United Kingdom Border Agency (UKBA) to support visa applications. Delegates will be provided with a visa letter to support their application at the British Embassy / High Commission.
All applicants attending LCT courses must apply for student visitor visas. As LCT is accredited by the British Accreditation Council (BAC) for independent further and higher education – a UKBA approved accreditation body, all delegates applying for student visitor visas will be successful provided all the necessary supporting documentation is included.
Following is a list of recommended documents that delegates can include as part of their visa applications:
Passport or travel document, valid for at least 6 months (the passport must have at least one clear page for the visa)
Two recent passport-sized colour photographs with a white background
Correct application form fully completed in English
Visa support letter from LCT
Letter of employment
Six months itemised bank statements/evidence of assets
Letter from your sponsor (employer), confirming they are paying for the course
Evidence of accommodation in London
Relevant diplomas or educational certificates that you have achieved (it is helpful to submit mark sheets/passing certificates)
Original IELTS/TOEFL Certificate, or other evidence of your ability to speak English
Detailed information with regard to visa requirements can be found on your local British Embassy’s web site.
I find the attitude of the staff of LCT to be highly commendable. They are nice, courteous, helpful and ever ready to assist.
