International students accepted into a British educational institution must apply for a UK Study Visa.
The previous Tier 4 (General) UK Study Visa has undergone a "rebranding" as a result of Brexit, which is mostly owing to the fact that students from the EU and EEA will now be needed to apply for a visa in order to study in the UK.

Students on student visas can only work on a temporary basis; they cannot be hired on a permanent basis. They cannot be self-employed, start a business, or work as a professional athlete or entertainer.
There are currently three types of UK student visas, including:
The UK student visa comes under Tier 4 (General), and B1 is required CEFR level. The minimum IELTS score for a UK study visa is 4.03 and above (for all the skills).
To study in the UK, you must be above 16 years of age. There is no upper age limit for a UK Study visa
The length of your course and the studies you've already done in the UK will determine how long you can stay. If you are 18 or older and studying at the university level, you can normally stay in the UK for up to 5 years. If it is less than a degree level, you can normally stay in the UK for up to 2 years.
