Overseas students and Visa Information

The UK Government has introduced a new visa system called the Child Student Visa – details of which can be found here -

All prospective international students, including those from Europe coming to study in the UK after the end of the transition period, will need to apply through the Student route before coming to the UK.

EEA students resident in the UK on or before 31 December 2020 do not need to apply through the route. They are eligible to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme. More information on the EU Settlement Scheme can be found here -

In April 2015, the government introduced a mandatory charge to be paid by non-EEA nationals who apply to come to the UK to contribute to the National Health Service (NHS). The information from the Home Office can be found here

Oakham School has reviewed the administrative time and cost of dealing with a CAS number including the cost charged by the UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI) to the School.  In line with many other UK boarding schools, we are therefore introducing a charge of £250 which will be included in your Winter Term invoice.

Biometrical Residence Permits (BRPs)

Oakham School now has an Alternative Collection Location Code (ACL), which means that the BRP can be sent direct to the School for collection on your arrival when term commences if you have used this code on your visa application form.

The ACL code to have the BRP delivered to Oakham School is 3SC682

Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) collection - Oakham School's Alternative Collection Location code (ACL)

Oakham School's Alternative Collection Location code for BRP collections is 3SC682.  This code needs to be entered into the relevant area of the Tier 4 application form and ensures that the BRP will be sent directly to school rather than needing to be collected from a central area in Leicester.
