Child Student Immigration Route
The Child Student route enables a child aged between the age 4-17 years to study in the UK at an independent educational institution that hold a sponsor licence.
A student child may be permitted to work up to ten hours a week during term time or full-time during school holidays once the child is over the age of 16 or over. A child student is not permitted to bring dependants however those under the age of 12 years may be accompanied by a parent or guardian. This route does not lead to settlement however time spent under the category can count towards ten years lawful residence in the UK for Indefinite Leave to Remain.
