Visas & Residence Permits
The majority of students from outside of the European Union and certain other European countries will require a student visa to enter the United Kingdom (UK) and Serbia.
The type of visa required depends on each country's own national requirements, so it is important that you know where, how and when to apply for the appropriate visa.
Please bear in mind that you must apply for your visa yourself; however, once accepted onto the MAIPR and allocated a home university, the relevant university will be able to give advice and help to any student who needs a visa with the application process.
The University of Warwick provides the main documentation to get started on the path to obtaining the visas. Remember: according to where you are studying, you may need to apply for UK and/or Serbian visas.
Residence Permits and Local Police Registration
Most non-EU students will need to obtain a residence permit and register with the local police. Information on how to do this will be advised at the appropriate time.
All students will need to register with the police in Serbia, regardless of nationality
For more information on visa application, residence permits and police registration, please consult the following websites:
United Kingdom: each student who needs a UK visa going to Warwick in ST1 (end of September to end of December 2013) normally requires a UK Tier 4 student visa. Warwick's Postgraduate Admissions Office will issue each student who has an unconditional offer on the MAIPR with a Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies document (known as a CAS). You must have received your CAS before you apply for the Tier 4 student visa. You will be issued the visa only within three months before you are due to start your course at Warwick. Please go to http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/international/offerholders/preparing/visa_apply-/ for more details and information on how to apply. For more information on UK student visas, contact Warwick's Immigration Team via email@example.com
Serbia: students studying at the University of Arts in Belgrade (UAB) on the ST2 period of study (beginning of February to end May 2014), who need a visa will most probably require a type D visa. These must be obtained via your local Serbian Embassy/Consulate. As an example, for students living in the UK: you should check out the Serbian Embassy Consular Services' website via http://www.serbianembassy.org.uk/consular.php for information on the visa process.
