Short-term Study Visa - UEA strongly encourages students to apply for their Short Term Study visa in advance even if they have the option to obtain it at the border. This allows multiple entries and therefore easier travel to and from Europe,  minimises the risk of being given the wrong visa, and allows the use of the eGates for rapid entry.
