'Getting to the UK is easier than you think. There are many direct international flights to airports throughout the UK regions. If you are coming to the UK from Europe, you could also sail into one of the major ports, or even arrive by train through the Channel Tunnel.'
If you can’t find a direct flight to an airport near your place of study, you could fly to Europe and make a connection to one of the other UK regional airports. If you do, check with your airline whether you need a transit visa. This normally gives you a fixed amount of time after arrival to complete your onward journey.
If there are any connecting flights when you travel to the UK, we’d suggest that you check yourself and your luggage in for the entire journey, if this is possible. This makes airport transit much easier.
