All applicants attending LCT courses must apply for short-term study visas. As LCT is accredited by the British Accreditation Council (BAC) for independent further and higher education – a UKVI approved accreditation body, all delegates applying for short-term study 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 six 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.
