Depending on your nationality and country of residence, you may require a UK Visa to study at OCMS
The official British Government website for visa services has the information you need to be able to assess whether or not you will need a visa to come to study here. You are able to download a visa application form from http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/visas-immigration/ and should be able to submit your application to your nearest British High Commission or Embassy, once you have accepted a place to study at OCMS.
Please apply well before you travel to the UK. OCMS can assist you with your visa application by preparing a letter of introduction to the relevant section for submission with your application.
If you require a letter of introduction we will need the following information from you:
- The full address where you intend to submit your application
- Your full name (as it appears on your passport)
- Your passport number and expiry date
- Your date of birth
- Your intended travel dates.
Please allow sufficient time for us to be able to prepare this letter and to get it to you whilst still allowing time for assessment and travel.

It is important that you cite this in any visa application for study in the OCMS Research Programme.
