Start Your Journey to England and Football Excellence

FCV International Football Academy welcomes students from around the world. As a result, a visa may be required to allow entrance into the UK, as immigration control in the UK affects everyone who is not a British subject.


UK Student Visa

Please read the UK government’s official Student Visa guidance before you apply, as this explains in detail how to apply, and what information you must submit with your application. If you have any questions about your visa application, please do not hesitate to contact us – our contact details are shown at the bottom of this page.

You must apply online for your Student Visa.

When you apply for the visa you must provide supporting documentation, including:

  1. A current passport or other valid travel documentation;
  2. Proof that you can support yourself financially and pay for your course – this will vary depending on your circumstances;
  3. If you are aged under 18, you must provide proof of parental or other legal guardian consent, and proof of your relationship with your parent or legal guardian;
  4. Your Tuberculosis test certificate if you are from a country where you must take this test;
  5. The original supporting documents used to obtain your CAS – these will be listed on your CAS Statement.

UK Visitor Visa

The Standard Visitor Visa allows you to visit the UK for a maximum of 6 months. The earliest you can apply is 3 months before you travel to the UK. You should ensure that you give yourself plenty of time to make your application and receive your visa. You can find out how long it takes to process a visa in your home country on the UKVI website.

  1. You must demonstrate that you are a genuine visitor who will leave the UK on or before the expiry date of the visa. You are not able to extend this visa or switch to a different visa category in the UK.
  2. When making the application, you should state when you would like the visa to start (date you intend to enter the UK) otherwise UKVI will start the visa from the date they issue the visa.
  3. Make sure you supply sufficient evidence to support your application. It is your responsibility to ensure you provide enough evidence to satisfy you that you meet the visitor rules (Appendix V).
  4. Decision-making can be subjective so you should not give UKVI a reason to doubt the validity of your application.
