There are nearly 29,000 non-UK students studying at independent (fee paying schools) in the UK. They will have got there by successfully applying for a Tier 4 (Child) Student Visa. The key thing to remember with this type of visa is that you need to have applied to a school and been offered a place before the visa can be granted. The school offering the place must be the registered holder of a sponsorship licence. It is also possible for parents to travel with their child and live in the UK for the duration of their studies: but they have to apply separately for a Parent of a Tier 4 Child Visa.

This is called a Domestic Workers in a Private Household visa and typically covers roles such as cooks, chauffeurs, cleaners, nannies and carers. As with any visa application in the UK, it is vitally important to meticulously prepare the paperwork for a successful application. In particular, applicants need to show that the individual is correctly employed under the laws of the country of residence and that they intend to come to UK only as part of the family to continue to fulfil their duties.
