Please read this page carefully as the UK immigration rules have changed after Brexit.

Worcester School programmes are classified as work-related training which is defined as “any training course or other activity which is designed to impart, instil, improve or reinforce any knowledge, skills, or personal qualities which: are, or are likely to prove, useful to the employee when performing their duties” (source UK government website).

Work-related training can be undertaken on a Standard Visitor visa for up to 6 months provided this training is not available in your own country. Because a key feature of Worcester School is that you are immersed in an English speaking evironment in Kingsway House business centre it is unlikely that this training will be found abroad in a non-native English speaking country.

If you are from a ‘visa national’ country (for example Turkey or Venezuela) then you should apply for a Standard Visitor visa.

European Union nationals

If you are from a ‘non-visa national’ country (for example from the European Union) then you do not need to apply for a visa but you must still abide by the Standard Visitor visa rules as though you did require one (this part is new post-Brexit).

If the main purpose of your visit is to attend a programme at Worcester School then you must state that the reason for your visit to the UK is ‘on business to attend work-related training’.

If you are visiting the UK for other reasons primarily (for example on vacation or to visit your company’s UK office) then you should state those reasons for coming to the UK. You are permitted to join a Worcester School programme whilst in the UK for other reasons.
